Oil/Smoke out of crankcase vent, need help ASAP please!
My truck is spewing oil and a small amount of smoke out of the crankcase vent on the driver side of my motor. The two things that have come to mind after researching my problems, bad injectors or cylinder/piston ring damage. I'm pushing towards the bad injector idea, and am hoping for that, as i dont want to rebuild my motor that only has 105k on it. Only aftermarket mods are afe stage 2 cold air pro dry s and 5" turbo back mbrp striaght pipe.
One day I noticed a gassy smell and saw a small leaked puddle under the truck. I go to fire it up to find out where the leak was, and it was coming out of the crankcase vent. Along with some white smoke, oil and what smells and feels like fuel are all over under the truck, a massive mess. Even painted the tail gate pretty good. Ive started the truck with the dipstick out, no oil came out nor smoke. Took the oil cap off the top of motor while running, no smoke or oil came out. Sounds like its knocking more like a powerstroke then it use to, but not too bad. Dipstick seems extremely over filled when truck sat overnight. I know theres only 3 gallons so that doesnt seem right. Oil pressure drops to zero after idling for 20 secs+ at lights and such. From what ive read, seems like I have some failing injectors. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
