Sounds like a clogged crankcase valve, (PCV) maybe you had some moisture in there & it froze the flap stuck causing very high crankcase pressure, which would cause the oil to blow out......the valve looks like this...Help!!! BOILING OIL!!!-11151703484.jpg.... it is located under the intake manifold. I would try getting the car in a heated garage....let it thaw out.

johnny,
