    So you mean it's smoking white smoke? Are you seeing any oil spots on the ground?

    no its not leaking any oil and it is not smoking at all. the oil that i thnk is coming out of the exhaust just looks like a splatter stain on the rear of the truck and could be absolutely not related at all, seeing how this truck is very dirty and cant be sure that it is even oil at all. but no smoke and no leaks.
