The other day I stopped (after about 2 hrs driving) and within a half an hour had a puddle of oil under the truck totaling about a quart. So I pulled the dip stick and there just a little sign on the end of the stick--almost no oil. So I add about 5 quarts and drive it about 15 min home. The next day I check the oil, and I have twice the amount I should, so I drain out 5 qt.

The only place I know of to store oil in an engine other than the pan is in the valve covers. So I am thinking I have returns that are not letting oil through. I get it all apart and everything is clean and tubes are not blocked. Oh this is a rebuilt engine, only a year old. So maybe some silicone from valve covers blocked returns?

Also this motor has started to leak oil everywhere; valve covers, oil pan, and oil cooler tubes-- it seems it just started leaking overnight. Other than these issues it runs great.

Could it be the turbo sucking up oil and pressurizing the engine ?

Any Ideas ? Jeff
