I'm not sure what you mean by milky, but I'll assume you want it to kind of blend want to use TV mode and slow the shutter speed way down and play with it in different shutter speeds to get the proper exposure and "milky" effect you are trying to achieve.

Hope this helps!

Ingersoll and 15T2 lub oil turning milky, why??

The milky appearance of the oil is due to moisture (water) getting into the oil. I recommend that you drain and change the oil immediately. atmospheric variations (particularly high humidity) will cause this. There are two reasons. First, when the compressor is running, air coming through the air intake will have water particles in it. That moisture in the air slips past the piston rings and accumulates in the crank case. There's no stopping that, but a clean air filter will help. Secondly, while the compressor is running, it tends to heat up. Any moisture that has entered the crank case will vaporize due to the increased heat of operation. When the compressor is shut down, the moisture vapor will condense on the inside walls of the crank case and form droplets which will run down into the crank case oil. When the compressor is started again, the oil agitators at the bottom of the pushrod caps will agitate the oil, thusly mixing the condensed water with the oil causing the milky appearance. Best to check the oil at each start-up, and change it when it gets milky.

Oil is milky colored on my kingcraft pressure

Milky-looking oil is a sign of water mixed-in with the oil. This is often a sign of severe engine damage (cracked block, cracked head) in a water-cooled engine. (i.e., one having internal water jackets such as a car engine). On a pressure washer it is sometimes an indication that the owner used the pressure washer on itself, i.e., so as to clean the pressure washer with the pressure washer - very bad idea. If this is the case, then the pressure washer is most likely ruined. In any case the milky-looking oil is a sign that the oil has become contaminated with water, and probably a lot of water. I would drain the oil completely and replace the oil filter too if it has one, then refill the crankcase with new oil. Then try using it again for 10 or 15 minutes or so, then reinspect the oil. If it's milky-looking again then I'd set it out at the curb on trash day.

Water appears to be mixing with the oil in the motor of my truck

Are you talking about "dark" and cloudy??? or whitish or tannish cloudy??? When motor oil gets some miles on it, it turns a little blacker and more difficult to see through. If this happens to be the "cloudy" you're talking about, things are probably normal. However, when oil gets to looking milky, you've likely got a serious problem.. Water (or coolant) in the oil creates this milky appearance. It depends somewhat on what engine you have in your truck in determining the exact cause of the problem.... but the possibilities are blown head gasket, cracked head, cracked engine block, or some other similar malady.. Good luck...

G2500vh engine problems

Hi Derek.
It is almost impossible for the engine oil to become "milky" under normal circumstances. If you have changed the oil and have used the wrong type, it may become aerated and appear milky. The only other way for water to be added to the sump is through the oil filler. I doubt this is the case as it is a neglect thing and indicates that someone has run the machine without the oil filler caps. Hopefully this is not the case, but as the engine has a low oil level sensor, it might be the reason why it wont start. It's a safety device.
There is no way that the engine oil can be contaminated by water from the pressure pump.
If you mean that the water pump oil is milky, this means that the seals have failed between the pump and the transmission. Difficult to check in a G2500. If this is the case the machine has probably been used beyond the manufacturer's intent and has overheated.

Milky appearance on the oil cap

Generally that means water in the oil. Is the oil on the dipstick the same color? If so, it could potentially be something very bad, such as a leaking head gasket or coolant passage that is allowing antifreeze to leak into the engine when under pressure. If the milky appearance is just on the refill cap and the oil on the dipstick looks normal, then you could just have a small amount of water from condensation. That can happen if the vehicle sits a long time without being used.

Our dishes are milky colored and not appear to be clean!

Hard water, or not rinsing well. I use
"Lemi shine" in one of the soap holders.
Also make sure you have plenty of jet dry in
the rinse aid holder. These two things make
my dishes sparkle. I live in Arizona, and
our water is horrible it eats away at everything.

What is the solution ? It is the same when it's in night-shot or night-framing.
