I just had a shop put some new sticks in my d-max. Now it is making oil, what should I look at, I checked the balance rates all were +/- 1 except one was at 2.7 or so. Thanks for the help..

Most likely one of the return line seals is leaking. It happens sometimes, they just don't get tightened down or just don't seal properly. If someone did it for you, take it back to them and give them a chance to make it right. If they tell you to pound sand, it's not all that hard to get in there and fix it, look in the DIY section, I think theres a write up on injector replacement that you can follow to fix it yourself

Nope. You need to take the valve covers off and start the truck to see
