Ford 3000 lift slow and jerky when cold after warm up very sensitive oil looks milky could fluid be problem

Oil or fluid will look milky if it is either emulsified (with water) or if it become aerated.

Emulsified fluid or oil will promote corrosion and aerated fluid is compressible which is unsuitable for hydraulic applications.

Loosing water in engine but no obvious leaks. and help

Have you pulled the dipstick to make sure the water is not leaking into the engine itself and mixing with the oil. If the oil looks milky then that is your problem. Also make sure that your transmission fluid is the correct color.

Coolant loss with no trace

Doesn't sound good at all. If the water is not running out on the ground on the floor, it can only be going into the engine or out the exhaust pipe. Have a look at the oil dipstick and see what level the oil is at. If you add water and the level increase, you know the water is going into the engine. If this happens, it turns the oil a milky white. Get it fixed fast before it destroys your engine. The other end of the car, check the exhaust pipe and see if water is coming out there. These faults indicate a cracked head, blown head gasket or blown water jacket. the last thing to check is if your car is an automatic with an oil cooler in the radiator, it could be filling the auto transmission with water... Another disastrous thing to happen... If there is any reddish coloured fluid in the radiator or if the transmission fluid has gone a milky brown colour, that could be the problem. Either way, hidden losses of coolant usually mean major repairs...

Powersteering milky in 02 Lincoln

Time to change the power steering fluid. Some cars use power steering fluid, while other cars use transmission fluid. Do not use the wrong fluid in your car or you will have even bigger problems.

Water get into oil

Water in oil makes the oil go grey / milky or white . Check the cooling system by a pressure test and if it is holding then it will not be water in the oil.. If you are referring to transmission oil then the tan colour indicates burnt oil, and must be replaced. Water in that oil will also be a white cherry/ milky colour.

I have a 2010 hummer h3 that has a milky color in the radiator we checked all the fluids the engine oil is fine but the transmission fluid is barely touching the dipstick what could the problem be ...........

Milky colour in the radiator means that the engine has overheated and the head gasket is blown and might need replacement after skimming the cylinder head.The milky colour is oil in the engine mixing with water that cools the engine

Antifreeze has a white millky substance to it especially in coolant bottle and in hoses. Mechanic say that radiator is failing. Is this true?

Check the oil and also transmission fluid, one of them should also be milky. If it's the oil that is also milky then most likely cause is blown headgasket. If it's transmission fluid, then the radiator probably has failed in the transmission cooler section. If the transmission fluid is milky, then you also need to have the fluid flushed and the trans. filter changed after fixing the radiator.

Transmission fluid milky what can cause this and how do I change the fluid

Milky, means water have mixed w/ ur transmission fluid! There must be some leak during the cooling process in the oil cooling system! It goes through the main engine radiator, there must be some holes that water seeps through the transmission tube! Go to ur nearest garage to check on it before the damage in ur transmission could get big!
