I have smoke coming from tube, 224000k. Compared to my sons which has 231000k and no smoke. My truck has been doing this for going on 3 years and never really thought to much about it. It might leave one or two drops of oil on concrete over night. You think I might be losing eng?

Naw... I'll grab a video of my tube and the smoke it puts out... Its enough that on a cold night I can see the oil vapor in the headlights...

Smoke out the crankcase vent is normal...

Sounds good,makes me feel a little better. My 1976 John Deere 4030 does the same thing, she only has 2100 hr. so I can see that being normal. Thanks

My current ford 6oh does the exact same thing, and where I have the tube dumping a dew drops of oil get on a drop bracket every so often but never any substantial amount of oil
