99 E300 & 87 300D

I've been making bio-fuel for a couple of years and have since converted my small family fleet of vehicles to diesel. Things are going well - not without issues to address, however. My latest issue is with my 99 E300. This is a fantastic car, generally, but lately I've noticed that when the engine is put under relatively heavy load, the engine oil dipstick sometimes pop-up, thus splashing a bit of oil in the surrounding areas, including the turbo and exhaust manifold. I understand that with the turbo spooled up, crankcase pressures could go up, but isn't there a breather to relieve this pressure? Maybe a screen or filter that needs to be cleaned/replaced? Any assistance would be appreciated.
