Head gasket blew on my 1989 Honda Accord SEI, 2.0L Fuel injected engine. I had the head surfaced. When car was put back together, the air filter woul fill with oil, after about 10 miles of driving. This problem did not occur before head gasket problem. Any ideas of what could be causing this?

Make sure the PCV is hooked up and functioning properly, also check the oil level, make sure it isn't overfull.
