You may have been on the Saskatchewan side of Lloyd, but that coal burning lump has Alberta plates on it.Not picking on Alberta, just making an observation .

We do have our share of coal rolling retards here, makes me want to jam a bunch of potatoes in their exhaust pipes when I see crap like that.

I just cleaned it a couple days ago. Dirtier than I expected. Still waiting for SD to tell me what the cause of the oil dripping might be. Expect the answer will be expensive.

I have a severe disdain for putting K&N's on anything but a race vehicle.

It was a busy day saving the planet from Killer trees.....


So what was replaced? The crankcase filter?

Improper oil level, worn turbo, sticking turbo, over fueling injectors washing down cylinder walls, restricted exhaust, worn cylinders, and dusted cylinders can all cause blowby.

It's all conjecture until you put a manometer on the road draft tube and measure the crankcase pressure. Last I checked the service manual did not have a spec for oil fill cap rattle.

If you feel a definite pulse out the oil fill while running that's trouble......

You know Chris, you baby that machine like it is a Swiss watch, and I am sorry to hear this.
My engine will probably not get a valve set, all I do is filters and oil changes. I have had extremely good luck with these vehicles, and I hope we find it is a simple fix.

If nobody has one, do you know how to cobble up a manometer?
