Why is oil blowing out of the oil dipstick tube when engine is running on a 1992 Taurus 3.8L?

SOunds like the rings on the pistons are bad. The rings are not sealing and the pressure in the combustion chamber is blowing by the rings and causing pressure in the crankcase thus blowing oil out the filler tube. You may, I said may be able to eliminate some of it by buying a can of RESTORE.........and adding it with your next oil change. I have never had a an engine with severely worn rings but this stuff is supposed to help seal the rings against the cylinder walls.............and maybe buy you some time. It's less than 10.00 You will need to drive it and see if it may or may not depending on how bad the rings are. If the rings are too bad, you are looking at an engine tear down.......
