Bad news. You may have coolant getting into the engine oil or the oil may just be foamed up. I suspect you have some serious damage in the engine. Maybe a piston with a hole in it or badly worn rings. I am afraid it is time for a new engine.

the oil that is blowing out is not foamy . the oil looks great except the fact it is not staying inside the motor

Your engine has a serious problem regardless of what the oil looks like unfortunately. Oil blowing all over the top of the motor is from major blow-by which is caused by a badly worn engine or a piston with a hole in it.
