Changed my oil today.When I took the cap off to replace the oil,the cap had some white goo on it.What is this?

Could be a leaking cylinder head gasket or a small crack in the cylinder head. Is the head aluminum? Make and mileage of the vehicle will sometime help as some vehicle makes are notorious for head gasket problems. This allows coolant into the oil and causes this goo on the inside of the cap. Have a trustworthy shop check it out to be sure.

Guys I've got a problem with a ford bantam 1.6i 2003 model rocam engine, its overheating even though the cylinder head was skim but it still overheating. please assist!

Check what head gasket was used . I suspect that an after market gasket was used. If that is the case there will be holes in the block and head thet have no matching holes in the gasket thereby causing the problem

if you had a oil leak that is not a reason for a head gasket or skimming the head. now the compression and voluum in the head has changed a lot. all it being a turbo wow :( sorry. those engine leak a lot of oil through the turbo seal

Blown head gasket 2nd time in a year

oh i love blowing head gaskets there alot of fun arnt they. but the reason your blowing head gaskets is the head is warped and you'll have to take it to a machine shop and have it machined flat again i would also have them check for cracks.

its a lot of work to get the cylinder head off before you replace the gasket and when the head is off,you will need to have it skimmed or it will blow the gasket again. you will also have to set your engine timing at rebuild so unless your a wiz with cars see a garage. Could cost you anthing over 1600 dollars
