If all else is correct and the wiring to the sensor is correct and undamaged then the sensor has failed. It's not at all uncommon and is fairly cheap. I don't recall exactly where the sensor is located, but it's screwed into the engine block and has a single wire coming from it.

As you described the problem I'm afraid it shows a problem with engine piston rings, the engine itself is burning oil and the part you are talking about is called PCV, they can cause problems but not as severe as you described. Hope it helps, comment if you need more advice and please rate the answer, it helps me with my general ratings, thanks!
