Yup, its blow by. My truck will do it with a hot idle. Now the key with blowby is this. Take the oil fill cap off. Blow by will come out with the truck hot and idling. Now increase the throttle until the blow by goes away. If you can get it to go away by 1200-1300 rpm's, you are good. Mine will totally disappear around 1000rpm's.
