Question about Cadillac Escalade
You said it was overheating and oil is milky, sounds like antifreeze in oil, possibly crack in head gasket.

THIS SOUNDS CRAZY BUT, ON SOME OF THE OLD SCHOOL CARS, THEY HAVE A CLUCH FAN.. AND IF ITS BAD, THE CAR WILL OVERHEAT WHEN DRIVING AND COOL DOWN AT IDLE.. I DONT THINK THE CADY HAS A CLUTCH FAN, BUT I BET ITS IN THE FAN.. GOOD LUCK KEITH..

I suspect parasitic draw. All vehicles draw some power from the batteries when the car is shut off. Certain accessories such as clocks, radios remote door openers and alarms always need power. The normal power used is called parasitic draw.
It is always a very low draw so it doesn't run the battery down. If you install accessories like shortwave radios or plug things like inverters and portable refrigerators into the accessory socket and operate them too long without the engine running you can drain your batteries to the point where the engine won't start. If there is an electrical short in the vehicle or a malfunctioning accessory it could be drawing much more than its normal load causing a drain on the batteries. If you leave your door open and the inside lights stay on all night you could drain the battery down till the car won't start.
Here's also a good resource for your car specifically on narrowing down the cause of the drain.

Sorry to say its your head gaskets. Probably from the overheating it wore out the gaskets. that milky stuff is your coolant mixing with your oil. Good luck. Suggest you take it to a pro. the gaskets are easy to change, it's everything else in the way to get to them that requires special tools and experience. Let me know how it goes. I have the same thing with my truck but not real bad. If your truck is running smooth and doesn't feel like its missing, or when your start it no puff of white smoke comes out your exhaust it's not that big of problem. if these are happening then i would get a quote.
