So I have a 94 Plymouth laser turbo, I bought recently, I bought it from the kid with a variating idol, and I thought it would be something easy like maybe just a intake leak, the car also blew the dipstick out recently just once under a load, hasn’t happened again . Any ideas??

Dipstick blowing out is usually caused by Blow By. Blow By occurs when compression is not being completely held by the rings in compression chamber. The compressed air and gases make it past the rings and pressurize the crankcase. Compressed gases have to go somewhere, so they blow out the dipstick. I would run a compression test first.
