newtruck needhelp

just got my 99 2500 cummins, i have oil in the tailpipe, the place i got it from overfilled the crankcase. i checked for a crankcase vent but havnt found it yet, are these trucks equipped with a crankcase vent and is the oil in the tailpipe from the overfilling or do i have a turbo issue? also there is no excessive vapors coming from the oil fill either so i dont think it is a base engine problem.

The only way you can have oil in the tailpipe is a failed turbo bearing/seal...

Here you might want to inspect your turbo...

Crankcase vent is here...
