all right, i know if your oil looks milky there's a good chance you have antifreeze in it which probably means you've got a bad head gasket, right?
i checked my oil and the dipstick looked pretty nasty. i also checked in the air box and noticed the oil-soaked air filter which was caused by a bad PCV/CCV/whatever system blowing oil and i saw that the oil that was coming in was a mix of oil and white milky stuff that smells, um, bad.
so naturally i slapped myself for not checking the oil/air filter when i bought the jeep a week before (
) and then immediately went to change the oil, expecting to see some nasty-looking liquid drain out... but it looked perfectly normal. not even a tiny little hint of whiteness. and i let it drain a looong time, probably about 45 minutes, just to make sure any goo had a chance to come out. still nothing. just normal black used oil. i even poured a bit of fresh oil in near the end to flush out anything left behind, but that turned out to just be a waste of good oil.
i fixed my PCV problem so there's no more white gunk in the air box, but the dipstick is still coming up milky when i check the oil. i was thinking maybe i just have a dirty dipstick tube, but if it's just that then how would it have ended up on the air filter?
so what on earth is going on here? sorry this is so long but this is driving me crazy.
