    Is it loosing coolant? and is the water in the gear oil? if the oil mix smells like coolant it must be coolant, providing You are using coolant.

    Has this had a water pump kit fitted correctly (seal)?

    If the coolant is dropping the only 2 places it can get in to the gear box is from the water pump and the O ring in the clutch cover It gets the coolant from the bottom of the .cly

    There is water or some fluid mixed with the oil and that is usually a pretty bad sign. If the bike was ridden in a lot of water (deep puddles, creeks, etc.) though it could be that an oil change will get you back up and running. This bike isn't a water cooled 4 stroker is it?

Oil cap and dipstick covered in creamy sludge, is this breather prob as not losing any water

Yes, it could be that a plugged up Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) valve or engine crankcase breather (with filter) is the cause allowing moisture to condense in the crankcase. However, if the valve and breather are okay, a cylinder compression test should be done to verify that the cylinder head gasket is not leaking. Regardless, the engine oil should be drained and the engine flushed with clean oil and an appropriate crankcase flush additive. Entrained water in the oil (the creamy sludge) will damage engine bearings quickly.

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!

My car over heat and I put some water coolant but there was steam coming from out. The water coolant just keep mon emptying the container.

You have either blown the head gasket or have a burst hose. Check the oil dip stick to see the coulor of the oil< if it is a Grey creamy coulor you are going to have to get the gasket attended to.
If not, give us a little more info to work with.

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.

Losing oil on E46 316i 2003

hate to be the bearer of bad news, but i think your head gasket has failed causing the oil & water to mix in the engine. usually, the water enters the oil causing the milky cream liquid (check the under side of the oil fill cap for this same creamy liquid) and you wind up adding coolant since it gets low.

if the coolant is not getting low, then it may not be anything to worry about. in the colder months, BMWs have been known to display this creamy liquid on the oil cap. it disappears when the weather gets warmer. BMW has a service bulletin on this.

have a compression check done on it to see if this is truely the case. i hope i am wrong. and 1 pint every 2-4 thousand miles is not too bad.
