If you’re getting oil in the motor it could run away on you. If the turbo is pulling oil, check your breather tube for blockage. I’ve seen many turbos start burning oil because the breather tube is kinked or blocked by debris. The crankcase psi raises up and the turbo seals are the weakest link.

When to change oil on a Cummins 6.7 engine?

The older Cummins powered trucks ran cool, clean intake air and the recommended oil change was 6000 kms (3700 miles).

Why does my Cummins ISX idle unusually high?

The truck would also idle unusually high at 800-1000 RPM. It idled like this during my 10 hour break at 1,000 RPM and when I woke the idle had returned to normal, 600 RPM. This truck was not regenerating, and fast idle is disabled. I’ve had this happen a couple times, and buffed it off as there was nothing I could do.
