Oil is creamy brown

Asked by Jul 22, 2017 at 07:08 PM about the 2001 Chevrolet Camaro

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Checked my oil and it was creamy brown I
changed oil ran through about 8 quarts of oil trying
to flush out and clean everything but it seems like
my coolant/water from my radiator is mixing with
my oil. Any answers and solutions will be greatly
appreciated.. note vehicle still runs but I'm
wondering if my engine has a crack or if there can
be another way radiator fluid and oil would mix. I
believe radiator was overfilled. Also wonder if
anyone else has come across this situation..

Possible issue with a head gasket or cracked cylinder head.

Could be the intake manifold gaskets. If you have the 3.8L V6 that's a strong possibility. HTH. -Jim
