Best Answer

Try leaving your engine oil down1/4-1/2 qt next time you change oil. Or if you have to add oil, leave the level down a bit. Too often this problem is caused by overfilling, even though you are within specs. Hope this helps. Oil will always spit out of the breather. Its just the nature of the beast.
