Sounds like a blown head gasket. Is there any white smoke coming from the exhaust?

Hi it sounds your head gasket need's replaced ,,,As for the water creamy white that means that oil is getting in to your water .
The head gasket has gone water can get into oil

White smoke coming out of the tail pipe .


White smoke is caused by water and or antifreeze entering the cylinder...If white smoke is present, check to see if the proper amount of antifreeze is inside the radiator and the overflow bottle. Also check to see if antifreeze has contaminated the engine oil. You can look at the engine oil dipstick, or look at the under side of the engine oil filler cap. If the oil is contaminated with antifreeze, it will have the appearance of a chocolate milkshake. Do not start the engine if the oil is contaminated with antifreeze, as serious internal engine damage can result.
Good luck..i hope this helps.... please rate me a fixya
