Foamie milky look on dip stick none in oil


You need to run a compression check on the cylinders and see if you have a head gasket leaking or an intake gasket leak. Milky look to the dipstick can only mean one thing and that is water in the oil and maybe the leak is just starting. It might be condensate but if it is it is not normal. If you don't find a problem I would check regular to make sure it is not getting worse.

Pulled oil cap saw water drip from cap pulled dip stick oil was not milky where is water comming from


If you are adding coolant, it could be a gasket problem. But if it is plain water, the engine is not getting hot enough to evaporate the moisture inside.

What does it mean if there is oil in my coolant reservoir


oil too low!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! have some change your oil & filter immediately !!! drain radiator & coolant reservoir , refill w/ fresh 50/50 coolant , white smoke is not exactly a good thing ! it could mean coolant is mixing w/ oil , because of a possible leak from a bad gasket either from intake manifold or head gasket !!! water pump would not cause this ! I would bet on a gasket leak given the age of the car . 2000 ! 13 years old, how was it maintained, intake gaskets are cheaply made, head gaskets are made well ! so, my bet, goes to the intake manifold gasket !!!!!!good luck kristle !

Sorry, this may be a repost. I have a 1989 2.3 liter Ford Ranger i've been working on. I replaced the gaskets on the intake manifold and within two days a milky white substnce (oil & moisture)


The high idle is a vacuum leak from your work, as well
as the gasket issue is not resolved yet

Have to start over & check your work

2000 durango milky substance in oil cap


milky in the oil cap is ok -- this is caused by condensation and oil mixing inside the oil cap and it is nothing to be worried about.
now if you look at the dip stick and you see a milky looking oil on it -- and if you do a oil change and notice it to be milky - then this is a sign that you may have a blown head gasket, and this you need to worry about.

White smoke coming out of tail pipe, iddles.


usually a sign of a blown head gasket or intake gasket or, gulp a cracked head or block. Check your engine oil for a milky color, This would confirm a blown head gasket. There is a test to determine if hydrocarbons are in your coolant. If your coolant level is low or empty, this is another sign.

Chevy s-10 pick up truck ,158154, 4cyl engine, wont start


Milky substance on your dip stick indicates contamination in your engine oil, most likely coolant and that is an indication of head gasket, or intake gasket gone bad and coolant leaking into your oil system. Note that coolant in your engine oil is bad, coolant will corrode the internal engine's bearing causing you to replace or overhaul the engine. The engine not starting is most likely the result of being blown and will need to be replaced.
Thank you for using Fixya and god luck

01 pontiac gt overheating. if a/c or heater on it


It may be the intake manifold gasket that has gone bad and you may be losing the antifreeze in your engine. Pull the oil dip stick out and see if it' over filled and look under the oil cap, look to see if there is any sign of antifreeze in your engine oil. Under the cap would have a milky brown sludge and under the PVC valve too, if there is then your engine is on it's way out if you do not repair the leak. Antifreeze is corrosive to the engine bearings and it's been know that as low as 1000 miles will cause the engine to go bad with antifreeze in the engine. The intake manifold gasket is known to go bad in the 3.4 liter engines till 2004 where they came up with an upgraded gasket. Good luck and keep me posted.

'97 Mercury Sable coolant leak coming from under manifold cover, temp gauge does not show overheating, but steams out coolant under manifold cover


after you run the car for a while do you see that the oil on your dip stick looks milky? if so the leak is getting into the oil. If so this may be a blown head gasket.
