If its a white or caramel colour then it is moisture in the oil.if you do alot of short trips and the motor oil doesn`t get hot enough then condensation will form in the oil system.this is normal for those that drive only short distances.the only way to get rid of it is to drive farther and make sure the oils gets hot enough to burn off the condensation or change your oil.if you run an oil system cleaner through the oil when you get the oil change this should remove all of this if not most of it.

If you have a full 4 litre oil plastic bottle square shape . hold the bottle on its side to pour the oil out slowly and smoothly.

Had the radaitor rod out had goose neck change had a single head gasket done check hoses and car stills runs hot and now i see slug in the cap of the eninge

if it looks like a chocolte milkshake you are getting water or coolant in the oil. pull the oil dip stick and look for traces of water in oil. if water in oil. you have another gasket job to do. more destructive route is through a coolant leak due to a bad gasket, an engine crack, etc. This amount of moisture is generally going to cause serious engine issues including loss of power, oil sludging, etc. Consult your mechanic when in doubt. good-day! if its a v6 maybe the other head gasket is bad. this will cause it to heat up.

Dip stick

You don't unless you can hook the car up to a computer. There isn't a dip stick. There is a procedure to follow that when the ATF gets to a certain temp. you open up the little drain hole on the bottom of the tranny. If anything drips out you are fine. If nothing drips out you are low on fluid. It isn't the most user friendly way of doing things but it keeps people from mesing with the transmissions and putting the wrong fluid in. The fill hole is towards the front side of the car on the transmission with a red safety cap covering a plug that pulls out. It might vary depending on which transmission you have, but probably not. I have the TDI engine and this is how mine is setup.
