Look at inside of oil filler cap for engine, if it is milky you have water in your oil, may show on dip stick but not always. Hope this helps

check for correct oil level in the sump first
this indicates insufficient oil level and the surge of the oil when stopping is allowing air into the pump and putting the light on

I have water in my oil cap but not on the dipstick. What could be wrong?


If your oil looks normal and you're only seeing this oil in the filler cap when the engine is cold or barely warm then it is probably just condensation from humidity in the atmosphere. Normally that steams off when the engine is at operating temperature for 10-15 minutes. If you have dropping coolant levels, milky oil or other signs of water actually in the oil that would be more serious.

I have a 2000 ford contour.It's over heating and I got white smoke coming out of the exhaust. What is the problem? Thanks


Sounds like your head gasket is leaking coolant into one or more of the combustion chambers, do you have any water in the oil pan?(does the oil look milky? Or does the oil filler cap have a milky residue along with the overheating and white smoke you have, these are all tell tale sighn of head gasket failure.
Thanks, Frank

Oil is boiling in sump blowing burnt oil fumes out the filler cap


I doubt the oil is boiling in the sump or your engine would show signs of over heating. Change the PCV valve in the valve cover as it may be stuck closed causing internal pressure to build up and escape through the filler cap.

Engine is a 3100 still overheats after i replaced the waterpump and thermastat


MOST OF THE 3.1 HAVE HEADGASKET PROBLEMS. THEY USALLY NEED REPLACED. YOU MAY NOT NOTICE IT RIGHT AWAY GOING INTO YOUR OIL PAN. QUICK CHK SIGNS ARE LOOK UNDER OIL FILLER CAP SEE IF IT LOOKS LIKE A MILKY COLOR AND PULL DIP STICK OUT OF ENGINE AND SEE IF IT LOOKS MILKY OR HAS BEADS OF WATER/ANTIFREEZE ON IT.

FORD ESCAPE EMISSION CONTROL WARNING LIGHT PROBLEM: I have a Ford Escape XLT, 6 cylinder, 2002 model, and the above warning light comes on, on the dash. The problem is, that it only comes on after the car...


look at the fuel cap, make sure the rubber is good ans not cracked and has no dirt build up on it, if it does clean it good. While you are there check the filler neck where the cap fits make sure it is smooth and not rusty, if it is, clean it good. the vehicle will randomly run a evap test checking for a vacuum build up in the tank if it does not sense the vacuum it will put on the light and it will stay on until it runs the test and the vehicle passes the test. That it the reason there are signs at the gas station that say shut off your vehicle when fueling. make sure the cap is on properly and on tight before leaving.

My 1999 Ford Expedition XLT started loosing coolant and the engine started heating up. I have replaced the thermostat, but it made no difference. There are no signs of a leakage, and no puddle are found...


check the motor oil to see if the level is higher on the dip stick, also remove the oil filler cap and look at the side that goes into the engine, see if the cap is clean or has a light brown milkshake look to it.
if you find the milkshake under the cap or the motor oil is much higher than normal the coolant is leaking inside the crankcase. continued driving will ruin the crank bearings.
if you find what I described, have your vehicle towed to your shop, stop driving it.
