Hi, I’m Wayne.

I will be assisting you with this issue today.

I see you cleared the breather, so the engine is breathing

what I would like you to do, remove oil fill cap and dipstick run engine

and see if it spits oil out them openings while running

if it does you have a stuck/broken oil wiper ring

I hope this helps you

Wayne

My goal is to give you the best experience possible.

I hope that I have earned a 5-star rating
