Looking at a 2000 Plymouth neon it's been
setting without being started for 2-3 years. I
looked at the dip stick and it was milky
looking. I was told that it was cause where it
sat so long drawing moisture that I just
needed to change fluids. I also know this is
the signs of a blown head gasket. I just need
to know could it setting not being started to
cause milky oil.. I mean it hadn't been
started for 2-3 years until the day I looked at
it and when I put the battery in it and turned
the key it fired right up. There was no noise
in the motor nothing sounded perfect...
Antifreeze in oil. Change oil & Filter and see if it turns milky again I feel like unless there was a water leak dripping in the oil dip stick tube that there is no way moisture in the air would turn oil milky. Most likely a head or intake gasket.
I agree. This is probably the reason it was parked in the first place!! Keep shopping!! HTH. -Jim
