You need a new PCV valve real quick! That is the abbreviation for Positive Crankcase Ventilation.  This is the device intended to let your engine sniff its own rear end.
It provides a path for pressure that naturally (but only moderately) develops in the oil paths of the engine to lose that into the intake by using some of the vacuum available there so it is burned instead of making the world greasy with fumes.
Since engines should be tight except for that path, if that valve is no longer working it will find the path of least resistance; your dipstick hole.
Even if your rings are shot, the valve should still handle the added pressure without puking out of the dipstick hole.

My oil light goes on when the car is idling but not when moving. The oil and filter were just changed. This is a 2000 ford escort

did you have this trouble before you had your vehicle serviced. If not you should check your oil level and make sure it is up to the mark on the dipstick.If your oil level is fine it can be one of two things ,either a defective oil pressure switch or it could be low oil pressure.

I just bought 1998 Ford Escort SE and can't find the oil dipstick. Exactly where is it, and is there perhaps a picture or schematic of one so I know where I may have to install one? Thanks much.

The engine oil dipstick is located on the driver's side of the engine. Remove it and wipe the oil off the dipstick and then thread it back into the tube. Remove the dipstick and read the level. It should be between the MAX and MIN lines. Add oil if necessary. The coolant level is checked by visually inspecting the level in the reservoir while the engine is cold. It should be around the "Full Cold" line. Take a look at the coolant because oil mixed in with the antifreeze could signify a leaking head gasket. The brake master cylinder will be located on the driver's side of the firewall behind the strut tower. Pull the lid off and check the fluid level inside. To check the automatic transmission fluid level, first allow the engine to warm up to normal operating temperature, then check the fluid level on the dipstick. ------------

Thanks. keep updated for any more can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Where are the marks for the timing belt on 94 Ford escort

The mark for the crankshaft is in two places one on the damper it will correspon with the timing guage on the front belt cover. When you have the damper and cover off you will notice a notch on the oil pump housing it should line up with the keyway on the crankshaft. The camshaft has dot on the outside ring of the cam gear there is a notch on the rear timing cover that it lines up with basically 12 o'clock.
