I assume it is in your engine oil, milky oil means moisture in the oil, oil and water make mayonaise, it can get there because an engine is running too cool, like with no thermostat, or broken, stuck open, or lots of short trips where it doen't get warmed up enough to evaporate the condensation that naturally occurs as an engine cools. Or it could be a head gasket, or crack in a casting either block or head, so check the simple things first. If it is overheating and loosing coolant, it points directly to internal engine problems and should be carefully checked before a teardown, as diagnosis is usually niine tenths of the repair. I'm Hoping it's a simple solution for you today!

Water get into oil


Water in oil makes the oil go grey / milky or white . Check the cooling system by a pressure test and if it is holding then it will not be water in the oil.. If you are referring to transmission oil then the tan colour indicates burnt oil, and must be replaced. Water in that oil will also be a white cherry/ milky colour.

Nissan Maxima 1996 Engine oil turns milky white


Sounds like you may have a blown head gasket or a cracked head. There are test that can be done to check this the easiest and cheapest method I use is drope a few dropes of oil from your engine on something hot like the exhaust if it boils there is good indication there is coolant in your oil as the flash point of coolant is a lower temperature than oil

Coolant disappearing


If you are adding coolant every week, and you don't see any external leaks, the coolant is probably being burned thru the engine.
You can burn a couple of quarts a week and not see any smoke.
At some point in time you could pull the spark plugs and find evidence from the burning coolant.
Most common cause is a leaking head gasket or intake gasket.

Milky oil dipstick, white exhaust smoke, coolant in spark plugs


*White milky oil on dipstick = coolant in oil.
*Coolant on sparkplugs = cracked head or blown head gasket
*White smoke = burning excessive oil in the cylinders, which can be caused by a number of things including valve seals, cracked head or blown head gasket.
***All three of these symptoms together, however, means its the head or head gasket. Both are costly but better the head gasket than the entire head.

2001 TOWN&COUNTRY VAN WITH 3.8L engine, i found milky white or like white grease on the oil cap.what causes this problem


Water in the oil. If it is running right and feels good going down the road then it ought to be ok but if you feel like its missing then chances are you blew a head gasket. I have known some vehicles that develope that white milky substance on the oil caps and blamed it on condensation mixing with the oil. Changing the oil cap usually cures that problem.

We have not ran the car in a while a little white smoke


White smoke is a sign of a blown head gasket and coolant is getting into the engine with the oil and gas. Check your coolant for signs of oil, and smell for signs of gas. Check your oil and see if it is milky. Milky oil means that coolant is getting past the head gasket.
