You've got some issues with that EGR valve. It may just be a blown gasket. The bigger issue is why is the gasket blown as it shouldn't be functioning. Thats coming from the truck word. On the tractor side of things the motor may be under a higher load causing the EGR valve to have blow by. If it were me and the Emissions stuff is gone, I would buy an EGR delete. Its only a couple hundred bucks. On the other side of loosing oil, is there blow by out of the oil cap? The motor is a crate motor, was the turbo new as well? Could be cheap and be a turbo issue or could be more major and involve more. Does the turbine have play in it?
