Default 2005 5.9L oil blowing out of valve cover tube

Hi, gotta question. i gotta '05 dodge 2500, 4x4, 5.9L cummings diesel. there is oil blowing out of the valve cover tube which goes down beside the engine on the drivers side. i noticed it was about 2 quarts low on oil about 2 weeks ago, and again today. it is blowing out and it is blowing out of this tube a little at a time. what does this mean?

Also i drove it home from town the other day, (about 18 miles) and it operated normally until i got home and put it in park. (automatic) and it started chugging a little bit like it was missing. further investigation revealed that i hadnt changed the fuel filter in 16000 miles. so i changed it and put some feul injector cleaner in the tank along with feul and have driven it at least 80 miles and same thing. could it be my injectors are dirty?

any information would be helpful. thanks in advance.

I doubt with my life almost that injectors have nothing to do with this situation. But if you figure it out please keep me posted. I would be very much interested in what the problem was. Oil is suppose to circulate in the valve covers but not shoot out of it lol. If it's leaking from a valve cover then valve cover gasket...
