02 288k blow by?

When I first bought my truck at 236k it had a small vapor stream coming out the oil fill tube, but now at 288 I have some not alarming but puffs of air coming out. Could my pcv be clogged or is it normal for the mileage.

its normal for it to puff.

to check if you have excessive blow by.
flip the fill cap over and and set it over the hole.

if it blows off you have excessive blow by.
if it just slides off from the truck idling your good.
