Condensation, water if you changed your oil lately don’t worry about it. It usually shows up on the top of the dipstick. Not much you can do about it unless you move to a desert.

Check the oil on the dipstick ,if it looks milky (like a light brown milkshake) you've blown a head gasket ...not good ! Never heard of one spittinggas out the tailpipe but I suppose it IS possible ,usually its water .

With 1991 f-150 truck running the auomatic transmission will shift into reverse but notthing else

Rule out the easy stuff first...
Does it have the correct type and amount of fluid in the transmission? There should be a dipstick you can check.
After that, the problem could be with the linkage at the shifter, or the linkage at the transmission, or internal to the unit.

When I check oil dipstick has some white stuff looks kinda creamy, not alot but a little is on the dipstick. What is it? and how do I get rid of it? Thanks

This indicates water is getting into the oil. Bad news. It could be a faulty head gasket. You need a mechanic to identify and fix the problem.

Car is running hot and oil is white/brown color when i pull the dipstick

If the oil is white/brown.. Then that means that water got into your oil somehow. If it's running hot then make sure you have coolant in the coolant resivor.

Your glass was originally heat sealed to the top material. When it begins delaminating, your only recourse is to replace the top because your new top will come with a new window. Any sticky gooey repairs are very temporary at best

Good luck, Karl at

Car experiencing a sputtering when excellerating. Noticed it was getting hotter when I would excellerate and the needle would drop back down when my foot was off the excellerater. Also the oil light...

This really sounds like you have a leaky head gasket or worse, a cracked water jacket. You may be getting coolant into your crankcase, which would "water down", so to speak, your oil and cause you to lose oil pressure. I do not know what you mean by your "oil registering fine". I presume you mean the level on the dipstick. Do you keep losing coolant? Is there any brown/white milky sludge under your oil cap or on your dipstick? If so, you most likey would have a head gasket leak.
