I have about had it with this truck. I bought it and it has been nothing but problems. Now I am getting oil out the dipstick tube and all over the engine compartment. I checked the puke bottle and there isn't much oil in it but it is coming back up throught the dipstick tupe which has got me worried.

I can't believe the piston rings are bad already at 189,000 miles but its looking like they are.

The only other option i can think of would be a bad vacuum pump because my heater isn't working as good as it should be but im doubting that. Any help or ideas would be appreciated.

you might pull the breather off the front of the timing cover and hose it down with carb cleaner. It has a mesh in it that could have some crap in it. To take it off you just twist it to the left... its pretty tight. Also your oil level isn't way over full is it?

These trucks have a little blow by naturally, usually just a smokey vapor. But it shouldn't be too bad, and it should be coming out the front breather..

You could tap your valve cover and put a filter on it there, there is a truck i know that is setup like this, but i don't remember exactly how its tapped in.

There is a test for measure how much blow by you got using clear tubing and water... I'll see if I can find it in my travels...:popcorn:
