04 dodge ram 3500 diesel with turbo blowing smoke from vaule cover breather and tail pipe plus lack of power

Could be head gasket, piston, or other nasty issue. Smoke isn't a good sign. Run a compression check, that may help indicate where the problem is.

Oil is spitting out from the intake on my 2008 f-350 6.4 diesel

all diesels have a blow by problem because of the high compression and combustion pressures that pushes gasses into the sump of the engine past the ring gaps . have a compression test done to determine the condition of the rings and bores of the engine . Next check the pcv valve is not restricting the flow and building up pressure in the sump and there by blowing oil in the rocker cover out into the intake.. Check the viscosity of the oil you use and ensure that it is correct for your area of operation.

Pontiac 400ci blow by problems

Well you know blow-by is oil blowing past the rings and into the crankcase. If the cylinders were not bored, the new rings may not fix it.
The cylinders can be oval shaped or have wider points from top to bottom.
You might want to check the PCV system to make sure it is working correctly. The PCV valve pulls fumes from the crankcase into the intake which requires one of the valve covers to be vented to outside air.

Diesel 4wd smoking

Check to make sure the PCV Valve is working...when you remove it from valve cover and shake should hear ball inside rattling, and even though it's running ok, you might need new piston oil rings and/or valve job. In the mean time you could try products for "stop oil burning", or change your oil to a heavier weight...if you're using 10w30/40 try 20w50 and see if that helps.

1400 miles/1.5 gal oil consumption

Sounds like you have worn rings in your motor. Needs a rebuild, or replacement.
