Car spitting some oil on the filler cap may be normal, if it spits out oil from the cap there is a problem. check oil level and eventually have an oil change.

Most likely the thermostat is sticking. Get the system flushed (get that rusty liquid out of the system), replace the thermostat & put in new coolant. Should fix it.

I had the same problem. I changed the pcv valve and checked the hose. It still did the same thing. Then I checked the metal tubing that the hose connects to and found it was full of hardened gunk. I sprayed PB Blaster into the tube let it soak for awhile. Then took an old choke cable, put it on a drill and ran it into the tube like a drain snake. It took a while of doing this over and over but eventually got it cleared out. Now, no more oil all over the engine and hood compartment.

SOURCE: Hi i have a vauxhall
I'm afraid this means your head gasket has gone. What you are seeing is emulsified oil (Oil and water that have been whipped up together by the engine to create an emulsion). There is only one cause for this: Water leaking into the oil from the cooling system. ...And there's only one way this can happen, which is a breach between an oil way and a water way. 99% likely this is a head gasket failing, with a small chance that you have a cracked head.
It's not a huge job for a "Local Mechanic" rather than a main dealer to undertake, but without action it will get worse and worse.
