If it's on the back of the engine on the drivers side, check the crank breather that should go into the airbox. Might have come off or cracked. Would explain if it's alot of oil though, like gushing

Happened to alot of us mate!
the breather pipe gets blocked with gunk over time, and because of the cold weather it has frozen, the pressure of which is pushing the oil out of your dipstick, give your breather a clean and it should all be okay, mines all sorted now

hope ive helped,

Jord.
