I just bought an 04 3500 with 166000 miles it has blow by out the tube & if i pop the filler cap it puffs what do you all think
Oil light at idle indicates engine wear. New oil pump may not help if pressure is dissapated by worn bearings in journals and other moving parts. Blow by indicates worn rings "Puffing" possibly a cracked ring. Sounds like this engine has been driven hard or maybe abused. Not enough oil changes? Possibly need a rebuild to restore power and performance. I would do a cylinder pressure test first, see if compresion is any good. Will show any one cylinder problem also. If money is an issue - it starts and runs, just drive it till it stops..? Sorry to bring bad news. The oil light should have warned you before the purchase.
