Oil from dipstick tube......

I bought a 94 yj 2.5 with massive oil leaks, repaired all the leaks now I am getting oil from the dipstick tube. My oil level is fine (not overfilled) any suggestions?

PVC clogged or not working? Excessive blow-by?

Ditto on PCV valve........possible bad set of rings as well.....have a compression check done....

PCV is just fine sorry to say so compression check here I come. No coolant in the oil either so it's not the head gasket either =/

Agree with compression check. Busted piston in old Ford did same to me. Good luck.

The crankcase is one place there shouldn't be any pressure, good luck with the compression test, so far it doesn't sound good.
