Hi mate, two things come to mind....is the O-ring in place at top of dipstick? Is your crankcase breather breathing properly?

Yes I would suspect the breather, I dont get any spray even when the dipstick is out

Hi, as above check the crankcase breather, is it piped to an oil catch tank?

It sounds like you've maybe got excessive crankcase pressure, I would do a compression check to make sure you don't have worn pistons or bores. t would also be worth making sure the head gasket is ok, ie no signs of water in the oil or oil in the water.

Might be worth checking oil level, its easy to over fill with shallow sump. Also some breethers have a fine mesh which can become blocked and cause high crank case pressure.
