Sounds like it is water in you oil, most probably coolant from a blown head gasket.

I have a 1995 only overheats when i drive does fine when it idles.i have changed the water pump thermostat fan motor and radiator cap and flushed the whole system and it still overheats.

If your car is overheating when you drive it,but you have replaced and made sure the radiator fan motor is working and coming on,you have flushed the system and replaced all your cooling components,then you may have a blown head gasket.Check for a milky white look to your oil dipstick.If so,you have a blown head gasket.or you might also have an air pocket in your cooling system that you need to bleed out.Good luck.

Over heating and steam coming out of exhaust manifold. No milky oil on dipstick.

sounds like blown head gasket or cracked head allowing coolant into exhaust ports. No water in the oil just means it didnt affect water getting into the oil ports. So the breach is between the water ports and the exhaust ports. It doesnt really matter. Its till the head gasket or the head itself. sorry..

My heat stopped working my cars blowing smoke out of the muffler and my temperature gauge is past hot but the carrs engine isnt smoking

if theres smoke coming out of the exaust then the motor is smoking. sounds like you have a blown head gasket and it's low on water is why the heat isn't working.

Condensation, water if you changed your oil lately don’t worry about it. It usually shows up on the top of the dipstick. Not much you can do about it unless you move to a desert.

okay first, if you want a copy of the factory service manual (pdf), CLICK HERE

now it sounds like your head gasket. pull your oil dipstick and check for signs of coolant in the oil. if possible do a compression test on the motor, its the best way to check for a blown head gasket.
