Also, check to make sure that you haven't overfilled the oil reservoir with too much oil. If the oil level gets too high in the sump, the crankshaft could whip it into a foam.

Bingo. We had another car with that dent. Causing a problem too. Who was that? Get a new pan ASAP. When you swap pans, make sure the pickup and strainer aren't damaged or bent.
