Question about 1996 Toyota Corolla
I heard this means then a mead is about to go, is this true. My car does not seem to be loosing power. I topped it up with oil today and it actually seemed to have more accreleration afterwards. Thanks in advance for your answers
The white residue is an indication of moisture. this can be simply that the engine was hot then cooled down and knocked some humidity out of the air onto the cap and it mixed with some oil. You have a problem if you start to see that same white residue on the dipstick when checking the oil then that means that coolant is leaking into the oil. Also if you drain the oil you'll see water come out of the drain plug first then oil, thats a bad head/headgasket.
