My '93 SC is launching oil out of the dipstick any ideas on why this could happen?
Oil levels are normal when checked so I am out of ideas. :confused:

A bad PCV valve can cause pressure to build up.

I checked all the lines running from valve cover to valve cover and changed the PCV and it didnt help. I guess it is a bad ring.

While running can you feel pressure blow out the dipstick hole?

Same thing happened to mine. I have an aftermarket blower putting out alot of boost so it would actually blow the dipstick out of the tube. If it happens under hard acceleration it is the rings. It's a symptom I've heard called reverse compression.
