Customer Question
Oil pushing out the...

Oil pushing out the air dryer on sdp cat. new compressors, changed crank vent filter, happens after engine warms up. doesnt matter if under load or at idle overnight

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

2009 pete 388 sdp cat. last 6 digits on truck serial 780 870

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?

400 k on inframe. truck uses alot of oil, before this air dryer issue. Seems like air dryer issue us a continuation. Dyno tests look good but no one has removed oil return line from turbos to check for leak, only relying on dyno report. smell like crankcase when warmed up to operating temp
