    Its like 20 Degree's out side but I managed to get some photo's of the issue an hour ago. They are in the album:

    What ever this is, it is costing me between 2-3 quarts between changes every 3 months and for me, it is a big enough issue that I might need to replace the GM with another brand when I get the next truck. I washed/ de-greased the bottom about a week ago, so this is all fresh oil.

    I did check the TSB mentioned and found the fixed PCV valve at auto zone and put that in. Somehow, I don't think that is the cause of this problem.

    That IS a lot of oil. I don't have a drop on my motor on the outside, it just sucks it up inside. Oil leaks go DOWN and BACK. As an amateur, I would say if your valve cover is not leaking I would look for the oil filter adapter, the filter housing, or the pan leaking. Some oil will go up, but usually it will have to be under pressure to do so. Drips don't.
