    I thinking I have a fuel line leaking under the valve cover, does anyone know if one side is more likely to have the problem than the other??
    That is if that is the trouble? :(

    Thanks

    I checked Identifix real quick.. there do not appear to be any TSB's on this, but a symptom search "fuel leak" brings up a string or repairs concerning leaking injectors, and every one of them has you pulling the valve covers and inspecting the lines first.

    when these motors go into regen they add fuel to clean dpf whatever isn't burned off ends up in the oil I average 1 qt over full every oil change

    I would guess it depends on how many times it regens as to how much fuel gets into the oil
