You have a blown head gasket ! The milky looking oil is coolant getting in there ! Mite smell like gas because some of that is getting in there also ! It over heated ,warped a cylinder head ! Milky oil How to tell if your oil is milky

Coolant disapearing no visible leaks ,oil does not seem to be contaminated


Possibly a head gasket. This usually causes the oil to go a bit milky, but not always. Check for any coolant leaks around the gasket as they are sometimes not immediately visible and coolant may not be dripping onto the ground. A faulty/blown head gasket will also cause the vehicle to blow white smoke, especially on startup.

Running hot


When an engine overheats and coolant gets low, first thing that happens is no heat from heater-the heater core doesn't get good circulation. When coolant stops being lost, the heater will return.

Sounds like you are adding a lot. Don't run the engine long overheating or major damage will result-if not already. Any milky junk in your oil? I would have a pressure test of the cooling system to look for leaks and check for pressure-if it won't hold pressure, it is leaking somewhere. Do a compression test to check the head gaskets.

2000 ford explorer loosing coolant


Unfortunately this will be kind of hard but, it sounds like you may have a blown head gasket depending on where on the passenger car it's leaking? Drive the car get it hot. Leave it running get out and pop the hood. Start looking for leaks. Use a powerful flashlight to help look. If it doesn't leak while you're driving and only after the car is shut off then I'd say you're creating a vacuum in the coolant system, change your coolant cap at that point.

look for coolant in your oil ,the oil will look ''milky'' if there is coolant mixed in it. if you have milky oil then you have a blown head gasket. if thats not the case then we have to look elsewhere. hope this helps

I would have a mechanic look at it for you. Sounds like it could be an oil seal or it could have a crack in the case or it could be a rear engine seal is shot ?

96 suzuki vitara - radiator empties but no visible leak


Check the passanger side floor board for moisture this could indicate a bad heater core. Then I would check the engine oil and make sure its not milky looking (head gasket). make sure when you fill it let it run with the cap open with you looking into the cap to be sure is circulating and not vapor locked (air pocket)
hope this helps
