  • milky oil when checking with dipstick

    Hey whats up everyone need some help, when you read the title ya think it is my head gasket, but I cant understand when I drain the oil, now im on the 6 time in 2 months. No milky oil drains out. It drains out clean regular oil.... So 2 week ago was the last time I did a oil change and cleaned the dip stick and the dip stick holder okay 2 weeks looks clean, after a hard rain next day milky color oil when I check oil... so thanks ronnie

    While the milky oil is definately water in the bottom end, but if its not comming out with an oil change then its being steamed off. Have your coolent levels been low? If not then it cant be an internal leak. Could be that your getting condensation in there after a rain. My Hyundai always has some milky oil on the cap when I look, but it doesnt leak any coolant.

      I agree same thing happens to me on my bmw, just watch the oil and coolant levels.

        if you dont take any longer trips that heat everything up enough to steam off condensation you can get milky residue buildup on the caps...never heard of it on dipsticks but i guess its possible

          Was it driven during the rain or parked? Maybe the PCV system is sucking water spray through the valve cover vent filter or something like that.

          Freaky.

            Ha I know it just doesn't make any sense at all, a 90 wit 215 thousand mile, the truck runs great, the steam sounds just right but when they say, if you can work on airplane engines you can work on any engine that bull ha ha

                Dosen't smell like gas does it?
                Does it only do it when it rains or when it's humid?
                I think I would go with condensation at this point.
                Haven't lost any coolant?

                    get a coolant system pressure tester. if there's a leak anywhere in that system, it'll find it.

                      I know on the 3.4 V6's in most GM cars when there is milky oil on the cap or in the pan it means an intake gasket is going....
