If the oil looks milky that means there is a leak in the head gasket, and it allowing the coolant to enter the oil system.

Why does oil look milky, not like coffee, kinda dark and thinck?


It definitely sounds like there is moisture in your oil. How long has it been since the oil was changed? Has the car sat very long? Has it overheated?

Whom driving on freeway once I disengaged clutch, oil. Light started flashing till I engaged.. So checked oil.2qrts over.(2 days) so drained excess ..But still having same issue


IF you did not add oil, then you have a leak that is allowing antifreeze to leak into the oil. The oil will look milky. The coolant level will drop. This wont be a cheap repair either.

Ok,I have a 2002Firebird 3.8 seriesII, V6 coolant/water is coming up from radiator with cap off.


When you change antifreeze an air pocket is created in engine behind thermostat. You must let it run until the thermostat opens. Until then, liquid will boil backfkowing through bottom of radiator.
As for milky look, blown headgasket would cause white foam that if left alone wouldclear up. Otherwise it could be an additive in the fluid such as rust preventative.

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.

Sounds like a head gasket from your description. Look for coolant in oil (dipstick will look milky) If coolant is mixed in oil that would explain the rough idle (fouling plugs)

Yes, when the temperature rises the likeliehood of a blown head gasket also rises.

If the oil looks milky or foamy with light brown color, you know that the head gasket has blown.

I got an oli change the other day and the look


The oil is white because water from the cooling is mixed with it. Stop using the car immediately and fix it (most likely a blown head gasket) or you will destroy your engine in a hurry.

Radiator hoses


If the coolant is going into the engine the oil should look milky.
You might want to check your water pump to make sure has not worn out and is leaking from there.
