    Help milky white substance in my motor oil!!!

    Today I decides to check the oil level and when I pull out the dipstick I notice a milky white substance in the motor oil sample on the dipstick. First I try to stay calm but then I decide to check the fill cap and its there too!!! Wth is this antifreeze in my motor oil??? I only have 52K miles on this car.

    Someone said it could be condensation from not driving it and just starting it up once a while. I have to move it out of the driveway 5 times a week to get out of the driveway then I put it back and just park it.

    Pictures attached!!

    I say it is condensation Aaron. It is always bad for a car to start it up like that, it never gets a chance to warm up and get rid of that moisture. It is hard on your engine and exhaust system.
    Whenever I start my vehicles they are always fully warmed up, meaning the thermostat has opened and usually I have had the car up to highway speeds (but, where I live that is easy to do)

    Is it not possible to park it so it doesn't have to be moved around so much. You should the change oil much more frequently also with short drives, by the sounds of it your FX probably isn't hardly off the fast idle and you shut it off.

    Thanks guys for the reply. Yeah I don't let it heat up and I just move it right away. I just changed the motor oil like 3 weeks ago. The way my driveway is set up is that if I need to get out I have to move cars behind me. Its very annoying too :(

    If its condensation do you think the car is alright? I'd hate to change the motor oil again after just changing it a few weeks ago and it only has like 100 miles on this oil.

    Take it for a good run Aaron, then you will burn all that condensation out of it along with the unburnt gases that has probably mixed with your oil since it has only been run with the choke on.
    It will be fine, I would definitely try and change your moving cars around system because it will eventually start to affect your car.

    I agree w condensation. I would also remove the radiator cap and look closely at the antifreeze on the top - if you see oil- and it will be more than obvious - then be concerned. My old LT1 motor was notorious for this type of condensation - and was fine
