First how far up on the dipstick does the oil come? There should be a flat knurled area about 1/2" or so at the end of the dipstick and the oil should be about halfway up on that, if the oil level is an inch or so up on the dipstick then that is your problem.
Next, If the oil level is correct then with the pump running pull the dipstick out and hold your thumb over the hole (BE CAREFUL DOING THIS!!!!
), does it have ANY amount of air trying to blow back out that hole? If there is any noticeable amount of pressure on that dipstick hole then your pump will likely need repair/replacement, have there been any kind of repairs or modifications made already to ANY of the lines/fittings/regulator, etc? Does your unloader valve on the regulator work properly? By that I mean is there a momentary "Hiss" for about a second or so when the pump shuts down? Is there by any chance a continuous hissing or air leak anywhere around the pump or regulator when the pump shuts down? What I am trying to determine is whether or not your back-flow valve in the tank is working properly because this can also cause back-pressure in these little single stage pumps, theoretically a leaky valve there should not cause crankcase pressure but I have seen it happen a couple of times on worn but otherwise still serviceable compressors.
