water in dipstick tube only?

Recommended Posts

Ok. 1986 2.5l comanche. I checked my oil last night and found milky white on the top and half way down the dipstick, bottom of the dipstick seems normal. What would cause this? I drive it 60+ miles aday so its not like it sits of days


Sorry posting from wifes smarty phone

Kendal oil will cause that

Can you take a picture? It sounds like you are saying the oil level check portion of the dipstick is normal while there is a spot of milky oil part way up the dipstick away from the level check. If this is the case, I would not rule out condensation. Drain your oil and report back to us with what is in the pan.
