It sounds to me like your oil level is overfull and probably thinned by fuel. Check the level, smell it for gassy smell. If so, you have a leak. Either the fuel pump is leaking through the pulse line or the carburetor is leaking. This is the most common reason for your problem, but a head gasket is a possibility if there is no fuel in the oil.
