    Drove my truck 2000 miles towing a 6000lb load and it performed great. It's a Ram 3500 with a Cummins that has 200,000 miles so not super high mileage for that engine. I noticed upon my return it seems to have an oil leak. Not sure if it was leaking before, but it's a noticeable leak now. Any ideas where it could be from and does anyone else's leak and what did you do? Thanks in advance.

    first you need to find out if it's consuming or leaking oil. how much oil did it use? maybe it's just blowby, Check around your breather tube for excess oil. put a clean piece of cardboard underneath the engine & see where it's dripping from. it if that doesn't help they make blacklight dye you can put in your oil to check for leaks. (seems like no one ever responds to questions, I thought that's what forums was for ???)
