it occurs when oil does not properly return to the oil tank

causes could be several

umbrella valves stuck or worn out

return oil passages in heads and or cylinders blocked

scavenge port hole not in alignment with seal on oil pump

rings not seated

pinion shaft run out is excessive

oil pump body or scavenger gears are damaged from debris

prolly left some out
