Question about 1994 Ford Escort
Oil pumping out of dipstick
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.
