Took oil cover found white stuff inside the engine and under oil lid wat does it mean
Head gasket between engine block and valve header is leaking coolant into engine oil crank case. Expect a major costly repair because mechanic has to remove many parts to replace head gasket. If you have not overheat the engine, it may cost less. Because overheat engine will damage other components such as radiator,water pump, main seal, oil seal, timing belt.

SOURCE: Their is a white milky
No, it does not mean you have a head gasket failure. Moisture can build up under the cap and when the moisture mixes with the light oil film, it will appear milky. If there is no evidence of coolant in the oil on the dipstick or evidence of coolant in the oil when it is drained, then there is no reason to believe that there is an internal gasket failure, unless of course, you are overheating or the engine is running a high temp.

SOURCE: wat do all the wire
Unfortunately, these color codes are chosen by the manufacturer of the stereo and can differ from one maker to the next and are not even standardized within a manufacturers line.
If it is a factory unit, you should be able to obtain a key from anyone with a (very expensive) set of factory service manuals.
The most important leads can be identified by a tech with a multimeter.
The primary ones will be:
- Chassis ground
- Ignition 'on' +12V
- Ignition 'off' +12V (Saves clock and stations among other)
- Stereo 'on' lead for automatic antennas
The remainder will be likely in pairs, of which there can be many, to accommodate multiple speakers scattered throughout the car and may have separate leads for low frequency 'woofers' and others for 'satellite' speakers that handle mid- and high range frequencies.

White smoke: White smoke is caused by water and or antifreeze entering the cylinder, and the engine trying to burn it with the fuel. If white smoke is present, check to see if the proper amount of antifreeze is inside the radiator and the overflow bottle. Also check to see if antifreeze has contaminated the engine oil. You can look at the engine oil dipstick, or look at the under side of the engine oil filler cap. If the oil is contaminated with antifreeze, it will have the appearance of a chocolate milkshake. Do not start the engine if the oil is contaminated with antifreeze, as serious internal engine damage can result.
It is also possible to be a engine problem you should immediate visit a car service.
