Sometimes the truck uses a quart or half a quart per tank of fuel. Sometimes it uses none. It never smokes. There is pressure on the valve cover vents but none at the dip stick tube. The oil leaks out of the valve cover vents and onto the valve cover.

I'd like to find out if I can fix this with a head rebuild or if the motor needs to come out.

Thanks

Not sure why they do it but every LUV I've had has a lot of air flow coming out of the valve cover. Sometimes wet with oil and sometimes not.
