good afternoon

from your description, you have excessive crankcase pressure. the question is where is it coming from.

could be rings or a piston causing this. the way to narrow it down is to remove the injectors, I assume it is a diesel, and inject air into the cylinders and see how much pressure is coming out the oil fill cap. that will tell you the cylinders involved.

The truck has 369582 miles

ok, makes more sense that you have a ring issue

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Is it worth while to change the pistons and rings or are we gonna have to do a complete rebuild. Never had the problem till after the last repairs

with the mileage it is best to do it all. rings, bearings, pistons and a good valve job.
