Hello and thank you for your question,

If you check the PCV valve do you have good vacuum to it?

Mazda Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

In most cases if you have good vacuum to the PCV system and your still pushing oil out of the dip stick this usually means you have engine compression entering the crankcase usually due to a broken piston ring.
