Thanks, but if there was that much blowby, wouldn't the oil level be going down at least a little between the changes? As mentioned, the oil level always stays full.

Also, I have removed the oil cap with the engine running and I do not see any smoke coming from there.

Going through old posts..... the tube had came loose... that was the smell. Thanks
