May not be much help but many moons ago i had a ford that would keep filling the air filter with oil usually after a good blast of about 400 miles at motorway speeds.Turned out to be a blocked breather pipe causing too much pressure.Guess this would also push the dipstick out as well

Yeah, I would suspect a blocked crankcase breather pipe.


Cheers.
