Oil issue

I have a 2002 Windsor with Isc350 Cummins, 9800 Miles. On a recent 350 trip I found oil dripping out of the breather tube. Of coarse over 300 Miles it shot everywhere. Had the coach on trips this summer but only 150-200 mile jaunts. This happened on the same 300 mile trip last year and the shop tested for any leaks and ran the coach for over 4 hrs with no seeping. Now it happened again, engine runs great, no issues. Does not lose allot of oil just enough while driving for the draft to hit and spread all over the engine compartment. Has anyone had this issue? I plan on getting service in next couple of weeks and will try to address this again. Thoughts ? Ray

Sounds highly suspicious of overfilling the crankcase with oil. If it's overfilled, it blows out the slobber tube (which you described).

Check your last service. Was the proper amount of oil put in the engine? Check your engine manufacturer to make sure what the proper oil fill should be.

Look for the simple solutions first before spending $$ to fix nothing.

Over 22 qts in a ISC and it will end up on your toad. A lot of shops will take Cummins requirement fill for a dry engine for a oil change fill.

How much do you put in on an oil change. How do I tell if I have a "stiffener plate"?

Jeff i put 22 qts but you can put 20 to 22 will work with no problem but i do use the large LF9009 oil filter.
What is a stiffener plate?
A dry engine fill is 24 or 26 qts the best i can recall

Because of this problem with many Cummins engines, When I did my 1st oil change on my ISL, I filled it to the Low mark. Then added a quart as I went along. When it was midway between Low and High and no over fill issues, I left it alone.
