I HAVE THIS 2005 CHRYSLER PACIFIC HAD TRANSMISSION FLUSH AFTER DRIVING IT ..IT OVERHEAT NOW WHITE MILKY SUBSTANCE IN COOLANT RESAVOIR WHY ??


You need to check the oil and see if the dipstick shows overfill on oil or if you see the white milky substance on the dipstick you may have a blown intake gasket or head gaskets. I would think it sounds like a blown head gasket. Hope this helps.
If you are adding water to the system you have a problem somewhere you might want to run a compression check on the cylinders to see if you have a intake gasket leak or a head leak. How hot did the car get because you might have cracked a head. If you don't see the water in the oil it may be exhausting out the tail pipe.

Milky oil cap on merc c180 2005


You havw a serious problem with water getting into the oil.
Most likely it is leaking from the head gasket. You mentioned that the head gasket was replaced 6 months ago. Did the cylinder head get re-tighten after several hundred kms. If not this should have been done to avoid this problem.

Milky substance in the radiator


You have oil entering the radiator and when combined with water makes a milky substance. Oil entry is normally through a defective cylinder head gasket.

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.

Milky white-brown substance in radator.


Not quite sure what your question is but if your looking for an opinion here's mine.
Even thought you didn't find the normally sign's of a blown head gasket you need to be aware that a cracked head can cause the same issues that a blown head gasket does. Also it is possible to have a problem with either of those two things and not involve the cylinders. A breach between the water jacket and the pressure side of an oil port would force the oil into the water jacket. Since the spaces traveled by the oil are relatively small the transfer will tend to be one way.

However this is an uncommon problem. About all you can do to test for it is to check the oil pressure with a gauge and compare that with specs.
I would probably check it to be on the safe side.
Hope this helps.

Lexus ES300 White smoke out the exhaust no milky substance in oil


It could be the intake gaskets or even still the head gasket. How about the coolant ? Did you refill with same type coolant ? Have you noticed if it's thick and gooey ? mixing coolants will sometimes produce a thick gooey coolant that clogs up the cooling system. If the car ran hot it could also be a cracked head or block. Warped heads also. Somehow the coolant seems to be getting into the cylinder(s).
