hey William are you sure that oil was not spilled while adding?anyway it could be the grommet for the tube that is leaking the truck is now 11 years old depending on the build date on your door sticker and from years of operation and engine heat this could now be the problem was the truck overheating in the past or now the higher engine temperature would have an effect on the grommet and possibly the tube check for cracks is your truck burning oil do you see it as blue smoke in the exhaust if so the smoke going through that tube would eventually cause a liquid oil build up if it were leaking post back and we'll take it from there it's possible also that the screen in the oil pick-up tube in the oil pan is clogged causing backwards oil circulation from the spinning crank shaft rotating in to much oil that should not be there because the oil pump can't get the normal amount of oil out of the pan so a backwards circulation would exist and now the oil is filling up the cylinder head because it's traveling up through the normal holes that the oil drains through to go back to the pan and now it has no place to go it can not go through the lifters and the push rods because the holes in the push rods are to high for the oil to reach which is where it normally comes out of the rods to bathe the rockers and springs connected to the valve train and if this is an overhead cam engine the cam is not getting oiled properly is there any noise like tapping or banging coming from the motor is there a check engine light on also?
Blue smoke is the result of burning engine oil, plain and simple. A high mileage engine will have worn cylinders and piston rings that allow for increased "blowby" with every cylinder firing. Exhaust gasses will sneak past the piston rings and momentarily pressurize the crankcase with each cylinder firing. The puff of gasses in the crankcase blows some oil returning from the valve train back into the valve train area in mist form where it is sucked up by the PCV and introduced to the intake manifold where it is mixed with incoming air to be burned in the cylinders along with some fuel. And that is how blue smoke happens...
The solution is an engine rebuild or a different engine in better shape. The latter is the least-cost solution.
A defective PCV *could* result in more oil burning, but I think not as much as in your case. The keyword is "'99 Plymouth Breeze."
Age is not a friend to the Plymouth Breeze.
I would say you need to take your cat off and check to see if the monolith is blocked/broken up. The big puff and black smoke tell me you are getting a pressure build up, a blocked/broken up cat is the most likely cause of that.
