Thats water in the oil, did the car over heat? If not then it's going to be your in-take gasket, a cooling system pressure test is the for sure way to find out.

How could I really tell if my head gasket really blown step by step

check running temperature,check oil filler cap to see if there is a creamy residue on the bottom of the cap indicates oil/water mixing same check of radiator cap,finally check oil dipstick if this shows contaminated oil this is a positive indication of head gasket failure, the rad/oil cap check may only indicate condensation reaction. HOPE THIS HELPS

When I check oil dipstick has some white stuff looks kinda creamy, not alot but a little is on the dipstick. What is it? and how do I get rid of it? Thanks

This indicates water is getting into the oil. Bad news. It could be a faulty head gasket. You need a mechanic to identify and fix the problem.

Potiac fire bird starts hard.

Sorry but white smoke is a sign of water getting into 1 or more cylinders.I would pull the oil dipstick and see if it looks like a creamy color.If it does then you may have a blown head gasket or a crack in the engine block somewhere.

92 f150 5.0 runz rough and blowz water and white gunk out of breather filter tube

Sounds like you have a possible head gasket leak internally. The white gunk is a mixture of oil and coolant. Check your oil dipstick if its creamy in color too then quite possibly. Check the coolant level, if low then I'd definitely suspect it going into the oil. If both oil and coolant look good than it could just be regular blow by condensation. check the air filter for restriction, and the PCV valve for being plugged up.

My truck is running hot i changed out the water pump an thiermastat an put a new radatior in it

How hot is it running? Does the temp gauge go all the way to or past 'H'? When it gets hot does it boil over either into the overflow or on the ground?
  1. Check for water in your engine oil by looking at the color of the oil on your dipstick. If it is white or creamy looking you may have a blown head gasket.
  2. Check for oil in the water by removing your radiator cap (when the engine is cool) and see if there is a noticeable amount of oil in the water.

There is a white creamy substance around the oil cap what would cause this

The white creamy solution is oil mixed with water. Take out your dipstick and check for the same substance, if so, you have a blown head gasket. If not, it's just condensed water in your valve cover that mixes with the oil, witch isn't really a problem. Have a nice day!

White creamy thing on dipstick of mazda RX8

theres no water, theres no coolant, no cracked block, theres no problem, it is normal for an rx8 (for that matter a rotary engine) to have some white foam on the dipstick. all it is is oil being thrown about by the rotors all over the chambers and foaming up, there is nothing to worry about, its just oil. it is more noticeable in 04-05 models and if you so desire you can go to a mazda dealership and the will install baffles into your oil pan or a new one that is updated to help prevent this because they redesigned it after 05.

Car needs water re-filled everyday and in the oil it has a creamy colour substance which i have now noticed in where the oil dipstick is too

You need to change your water-pump before it gets your engine damaged. this is only a sign that the water-pump is bad wherein water misses with the oil.

Treat this fast.

rate this too.
