Thank you Wayne theres no pressure out of the dipstick, or no smoke there is oil splatter on the bottom of the truck, and there's oil drips from the hose that comes straight down From the blowby canister best to the small turbo, when it comes back from a trip it looks like it leaks oil from that hose and it's splatering the bottom of the truck. What I also notice is that the power steering resovoir was over flow and we haven't filled it up with oil

Technician: Wayne, Journeyman replied 3 years ago

I was checking it and it is not serviceable I called the dealer and they told I need to replace the whole thing if It's bad. Do you think that what happened with the power steering resovoir oil overflowing there might be related to that problem that it might be returning oil or somthing?

Technician: Wayne, Journeyman replied 3 years ago
HI
Yea, was not sure on that year
if it was serviceable,
any way , yes, that being clogged
causes pressure against the P/S pump seal, and pushing oil in
