Sounds like damage to the rings/cylinder/piston. Have a leak down test done to verify that.

Have you overfilled the engine with oil......check it

Also check for a pinched vent hose. If the vent hose pinches off it will build crank pressure and make it push oil out.

A leak down test uses compressed air to test the sealing of the rings and valves.

Wouldn't hurt to review the oil change/fill procedure either:

It's not your oil change schedule that's in question, it's the procedure. You can overfill an '06 by almost double and it won't show that on the dip stick because there's no room in the oil reservoir for the excess. If you did not drain from both drain plugs, and/or if you used more than 1 liter of oil, it's overfilled. A simple thing, worth looking into.
