need help. engine pouring oil out is unkown part

my jeep just recently has started pouring. and when i say pouring i mean it.
its a little unit by the distributor towards the front of the engine. when i start the car there's a little rubber piece that just pops out and oils starts coming out at a pretty rapid rate. there's a wires that goes in there too.
if anyone can help it'd be greatly appreciated.
its a 1995 wrangler 2.5 4cyl
THANKS!

make sure its not overfull...

also, something may have came loose there where the oil pressure guage hooks up. It would squirt oil everywhere... Maybe that came loose? Look really close with a flashlight where it is coming out from.

is this part that you are talking about coming out of the top of the valve cover? if so, it is probably the pcv valve. this is a pretty inexpensive par and easy repair, it is also a fairly common thing to have to replace. a picture of the part you are talking about would be helpful, though.

It's most likely your oil pressure sending unit.
What does your oil pressure gauge read? I'll bet it's low.

I had an 90 4 cyl it ran strong for 180000 miles the only problem that I had was the PCV valve. It wasn't the pcv valve its self but inside the valve cover where the pcv connects. It would clog inside so it appeared that the pcv valve would be bad. I would have high oil pressure in the head and it would cause my oil to foam and I would find the oil foam in the air filter box and the dipstick or anywhere that it could. Rebuilt the engine but the problem came back with in 25000 miles. All I needed was a new valve cover - live and learn. It wasn't until the internet and these kinds of forums that I figured out the problem. Ended up giving it to my dad and he put a 350 w/ 4speed tranny in that jeep. I upgraded to a 90 4.2 rebuilt it and have done many upgrades.
