Thanks for the question Harry. My name is***** only time that you will get oil that looks like this is due to moisture. It does not take much for this to occur. Most of the time it is from a small amount of coolant, but short driving will also cause this. If the engine never gets hot enough to completely burn off any condensation in the engine then eventually that condensation will affect the oil by turning it milky. About how far are you driving?

Every day just about 2 or 3 miles olso I have code came out p0322 cause hard star, p1780 and p1850, p0725. On coolant on oil is maybe blow head gasket or not
VW Mechanic: FIXITMAN, Master Technician replied 2 years ago

You can perform a block test in order to know for sure if there is a head gasket issue. It can also be an oil cooler problem. the 2-3 mile commute is not enough to get the engine hot enough to burn off any condensation in the engine.
