    Thought I pointed that out in post 12......

    *I* would clean and monitor, checking oil level regularly. Most doubtful you'll see any loss on the dipstick.

    The powdery part you mention is oxidized aluminum and not relevant to the seep IMHO

    thanks for the reassurance.

    I’m still learning a lot about this truck so im new to how cars work in general.

    but yeah the most I’m going to do now is replace the pcv and keep an eye for anything getting worse.

    Change out the pcv valve, degrease and wash the oil residue off and monitor it. What kinda oil are you running? Higher quality have more seal conditioners from what I understand
