Have you ever replaced the PCV valve? If the spring on it is wearing out, that could be letting too much oil from the crankcase into the intake. That would be my first step, since it's such a cheap part. I know all PCV systems have the potential to let some amount of oil into the intake, but anything else would be beyond my limited expertise.
