1995 Other Mazda Models 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 92000 miles

I was wondering something. I have this acura im selling and I noticed the guy had his mechanic take off the cap where the oil goes, while the car was running to see if it had blow back? I am not familiar with this but the mechanic said no

. Then me being curious I did the same thing with my mazda while it was running I took the oil cap off(where you add oil) and it was spraying a fine mist of oil out, but not smoke. Is that normal? My acura didnt spray anything out. Thankyou!

Yes its normal. They are 2 different kinds of engines and your mazdas top end of engine is splashing oil right at the cap.
