CCV or rings. If you still have your primary cats, expect to change them soon as they will get blocked up with the oil.

Blue smoke while reving

Well, not all rings are going bad at the same time I would imagine. Unless the engine experienced bad treatment such as the wrong oil or the like. It would just be one bad cylinder in the bunch? Hence my tail pipe question. Did this come on suddenly or gradually? Is it running smoothly?

So given that both pipes put out the same amount I would suspect it is a common to all cylinders problem.

The oil pan should be under slight vacuum driven by the plenum attachment. Have you pulled off all these hoses and see if they are backed up? Did you pull off the plenum and look down the throttle bodies. Any of them particularly dirty?

Does it feel down on power? When you pull the oil cap off with the car idling does smoke blow out of there like crazy? I would say get a compression test done and go from there.

Pull the spark plugs and check each one for oil on them. This will give you an idea if it is 1 cylinder or all of them.
Check the throttle body butterfly's to see if they are dirty and covered in oil.

Your going to have to take apart parts of the engine to find out where it is coming from, no way round it.

does smoke come out from under the hood? If so and you smell oil more on one side of the motor then the other check your valve cover gasket

Don't know why the edit button doesn't work but anyhow, if no smoke from under the hood perhaps your crank case ventilation is clogged

Thanks guys for all the help and useful information that you guys give me.

This is what i did. I pulled everything off the engine took the spark plugs out and did a compression check. The Cyl 5 spark plug was covered in burned oil. The results are CYL 5 compression 30 and the rest were all 90 i checked every single one. So now the question is what am i going to expect to be changed and how much money wise?

Thumper i dont smell any oil from under the hood. By saying the ventilation is clogged how do i go about cleaning that?

As mentioned i have already changed the non return valves and that didnt help.

This is an engine rebuild. The engine has to come out. This will be expensive. Contact @jcolley .

You have a compression issue on #5. It is not the CCV or anything like that.

Yeah I hate to say it but it sounds like your engine is 'blown' (

Haven't you noticed a loss in power?
