Air Stream L210vkw/L215vkw Air Compressor blowing oil
 
Hi guy's I have oil blowing out of the dip stick of my air compressor. I noticed the dip stick blown out. I checked the oil, added oil, put the dip stick back in, and when I plugged it in and turned it on it was blowing oil out of a small vent hole in the dip stick cap. Can you guy's please help?

That number did not come up on there web site so I could see what type it is.

I'd be checking the check valve first. If it's leaking back it will leak past the rings and pressureize the crank case.
Next would be the reed valves in the top of the head to see if there broken or dirty.
