Yes, I had a beater 2-dr Blazer. Started blowing dip stick and the oil fill plug. Turned out to be the passage near the front of the throttle body in the front of manifold that gets plugged with carbon.. Clean it out and run another hundred thou miles..

If that is the cause,you need to take care of quik befor you drive it a lot.It could blow all your gaskets & seals.I found out the hard way.

Take the TB off.Under the bottom,you should see a passage.Spray it good wit carb cleaner w/ the straw.You may need to let it soak.A small soft brush,or,if it's really hard,you may need a small pc of wire or a small drill bit.On the intake,the same thing,but,don't let any of the crud get into the intake.A shopvac helps.Also,ck your PCV valve & hoses to be sure it is working.Pull your PCV valve & shake it.It should rattle.Place your thumb over the end with engine running.You should feel vacum.

Sounds like the PCV line or PCV valve is clogged. The pressure in the motor isnt getting vented back into the intake, instead the pressure is pushing out of any hole it can find.
