I'm having the same issue. The truck has 187,000 miles on it. I lost 2 gallons of oil in 2 weeks recently in my engine that never burned a drop in a 6000 mile oil change interval. I replaced my injector orings last week thinking this would solve the problem. I'm still having oil loss. I towed my boat (8k) 100 miles round trip after the oring change and lost 2 quarts of oil. I refilled and so far under normal driving conditions I've lost 1 quart to 100 miles. I have no smoke out the exhaust. No oil in the coolant. I changed the fuel filter and there was no oil in the fuel bowl. I have run a compression test and all cylinders are above 460 psi. The engine runs perfectly fine and makes power. I looked at my turbo and it seemed to have play side to side. estimated to be 1/16th of an inch. My CAC tubes on both sides have some oil pooling in the boots. I was thinking that this may be my problem as running more boost when trailering resulted in twice the oil loss over the same miles.
Sorry for the long post. Anyone have thoughts on this?
