Light brown milky oil that smells like gas is not good. Drain the oil from the tank and refill it with three quarts of fresh oil. Remove the oil filter and take the spark plugs out of the engine. Using the starter spin the engine over for about 20 seconds without the new filter on the engine. Then wait about five minutes and do it again. The reason for the short spin time and the longer wait is that you don't want to burn up your starter. Keep doing this until you get fresh clean oil coming out of the engine. Put the new filter on and replace the spark plugs. Now,top off the oil tank to the lower line on the dipstick with the bike on it's side stand. The lower line on the stick is "FULL COLD" and the upper line is "FULL HOT". Do not overfill or you'll wind up with a mess. Then fire the engine and let it run for a while. Then turn the engine off and let it sit. If you look in the oil tank immediately after shutting the engine down, the oil will look light brown due to the foaming on top of the oil. Allow the foam to disapate and it should look good.

Now, if gasoline contaminated your engine oil, it may have contaminated your primary oil as well. I'd change that too. Drain the oil and add one quart of specified type of oil.

Good Luck
Steve

There is damage at the first-gear assembly on the mainshaft. To diagnose it properly, it needs to come apart.

Blowing white smoke


If you have overheated your car recently, then you possibly have a blown head gasket. Take off your oil fill cap (with engine off) and inspect to see if there is a milky substance underneath the cap. If so, bad news- head gasket. You can also check the oil dipstick for the same substance to verify bad head gasket, but usually it has to be pretty bad (gasket) or driven for a while before exhibiting any signs. The oil fill cap is a pretty good indicator. With the car cool, you can open the radiator cap and look and smell for anything other than coolant (fuel smell or oil slick). If so, probable head gasket.

2002 toyotal smoking white and rough starting


Check trans. fluid level while engine is hot and running, Check it twice to be sure that the level is full. The white smoke could be something all together different like a blown head gasket. check to see if water is mixing with the iol by looking at the oil fill cap, if you see bubbles and a whitish milky looking color under the cap.

Milky oil cap on merc c180 2005


You havw a serious problem with water getting into the oil.
Most likely it is leaking from the head gasket. You mentioned that the head gasket was replaced 6 months ago. Did the cylinder head get re-tighten after several hundred kms. If not this should have been done to avoid this problem.

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.

2001 TOWN&COUNTRY VAN WITH 3.8L engine, i found milky white or like white grease on the oil cap.what causes this problem


Water in the oil. If it is running right and feels good going down the road then it ought to be ok but if you feel like its missing then chances are you blew a head gasket. I have known some vehicles that develope that white milky substance on the oil caps and blamed it on condensation mixing with the oil. Changing the oil cap usually cures that problem.

Alot of white smoke coming out of exhaust


If you are also losing coolant it is likely a blown exhaust gasket. The white smoke is a result of coolant leaking through the exhaust gasket and and being forced out your tailpipe. You can check to see if the head gasket is blown by removing your oil fill cap and checking the oil for a milky brown color. I hope this was helpful.
