I take it that this is a diesel engine. The oil you should be using is diesel oil 20w-40 or 50 next there is blowby from the combustion process that is heating the oil in the sump and it is fuming of. If the engine is running well it is not a great problem
If when doing an oil change the oil is thick and heavy and doesn't like to run out then it is a problem as the paraffins in the oil are burning and reducing the oil to tar.and this means engine rebuild.
If it is a petrol engine then you can use diesel oil in it as the only difference is the cleansing additive in the diesel oil. It helps keep a petrol engine clean inside
I don't think its oil most likely its condensation, this happens when the exhaust system is cold and engine exhaust is hot creates moister and its got to go someware. Unless you see a lot of blue or white smoke comming out the exhaust i would not be to concerned.
First of all check the cap and the dipstick. If they are intact then you need to degrease the engine and fill with oil. Then look while the engine irunning where the oil is leaking from before you know what is wrong. I hope this helps.
It sounds like it could be overfilled, but that will be easy enough to check on the dipstick. Should be checked with the engine idling in neutral. Otherwise, the trans could be overheating, causing the oil to expand to the point that it spits out the breather. Pull the dipstick and check the fluid condition, if it's dark and smells burnt, the trans may be slipping or overheating for some other reason, and it's probably time to get a trans shop involved. You should probably run an auxiliary cooler at the radiator area in the type of application you describe, especially if you're gonna be using the gas pedal fairly heavily! Sounds like a sweet car, lots of fun to be had in something like that.
