Hello, and thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you.

When your oil is white or milky, this is an indication that water is very likely mixed in with your oil. I suggest that you drain your crankcase completely, and re-fill to the correct level, with new oil.

Start and run your engine long enough for your engine to reach operating temperature. Drain and change your oil again. This should take care of our problem. If you have additional questions, we can continue from here. Thanks!
