SOURCE: i have a 1993 ford f-150 4.9l milky white residue under oil cap

I have seen that with my truck too. It happens when you mainly drive short distances. The oil does not stay hot long enough to evaporate all the water.

SOURCE: 1995 ford f350 diesel white smoke or steam coming from oil cap?

Diesel Shop was correct may be blowby or may be to much pressure on your combustion chamber and it could be a head gasket going. I would do a compression check just to be safe. It's simple the cooling system check fits onto where your radiator cap goes and refer to a technical manual on your max pressure on your cooling system. I would do this just to be better off safe than sorry you know.

Well, this definitely sounds like you have a blown head gasket, and maybe a busted heater core (water vapor out of air vents). Both were probably caused by the car overheating creating a lot of pressure in the cooling system and blowing the head gasket(s) and maybe the heater core. The vapor out of the vents could also be caused by external coolant leakage of the head gasket on the hot engine bringing the vapor inside the cab via the heater fan...

I'd get that checked before any major engine damage happens...

I put oil in the motor and it starts smoking from the muffler it's white smoke

white smoke is steam
blue smoke is oil
black smoke is rich mixture

suspect failed head gasket, so check your oil for water droplets and a white mayonnaise-like deposit on the inside of the filler cap.

Excess white smoke coming from exhaust of TB 75SS string trimmer

This model is a four cycle engine meaning that it does not a mix of gas and 2 cycle oil. You just fill it like your lawn mower, gas and fill the crank case with oil

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.

Why does oil come out my vent hose.

First of all fill it to the top. Mileage doesn't matter on motorcycles. They sit for long periods without being run. Seals dry out and crack.

2004dodge stratus blows just cold air and it makes like a bubbling sound when car is turned off and smoke comes from hood like its over heating

open the hood and visually see where the smoke it coming from ,, if its the radiator ,, or its over flowing, check the thermostat it could be stuck, if its from the front of the motor, check the belt to make sure its not bad. look at the oil fill cap,, did it get replaced correctly? that would cause oil to spray all over the motor and cause a burning smell and cause smoke . the cold air issue can be checked by checking the thermostat , make sure the antifreeze is filled in the vehicle,, and if your vehicle has one,, check the flapper that changes the air flow from the vents to the correct location

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.

White smoke coming out of the oil fill cap is not good, it means there's water in there (white smoke = water, blue smoke = oil, black smoke = lots of junk in gas or ruined engine). I suspect bad head gasket or cracked block.

Car is blowing white smoke from exhaust when i step on gas

The most likely cause is a blown head gasket,but it could also be a warped head,was the motor overheated prior to the problem starting? The white smoke is steam,check the underside of the oil fill cap and dipstick for a grayish brown residue,check the coolant for a low level and oil conatamination,either of these conditions verify that a head isn't fully sealed.Unless your moderately skilled mechanically this a job to be done by a shop.A good shop will perform a leakdown test to verify this.
