could be a simple fix, the key is getting it to run long enough to check blow by.

when the trucks running flip the oil fill cap over and place it over the hole.
if it gets blown off it has blow by issues, if it just vibrates off its fine.

I would think that it might be blowing oil out the dipstick tube because the crank case vent could be clogged. It could be that simple or it could be something more serious.
