Re: 94 ford escort 1.9
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.

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.
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.------------

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.
The car needs to be running with the transmission warm, (drive around for at least 10 minutes) Place the car in neutral. Pull the stick wipe it off and place it back in the transmission. Reads just like an oil stick, want fluid in the safe range (checked pattern) area.
