that looks to be the classic and dreaded 'milkshake' oil from a blown head gasket or some other means of coolant getting into the crankcase. Never smells good, does it??

Good luck with that, time to get a different truck, a V8 or a 4BT cummins!

I would guess some sort of head gasket fix or heater core repairer. I would guess it needs a good flushing too.

I would hope its not oil but I think the only way to be sure is to get some coolant test strips

ok, best case scenario I'm guessing its just a blown head gasket? worst case, warped head, cracked block, etc? We filled the coolant (it was about a half gal low) and it was Sh!t brown. I'm thinking it doesnt have long for this world. We're trying to find him a new truck. If he gets a new one, or the motor hydrolocks/blows, how much is it worth? I'd like to have a 4bt project lol

them 300 will go FOREVER even with a warped head.... (know from experience) put on 50,000 HARD AND TORTURED miles on a truck that i bough that was still safety for the road here . same year only it was 4x4 an 5 spd. i bought it off a buddy because he thought it would blow up the next day, keep anti freeze in it and keep dumping oil (15w40, or 30) in it an it'll still be fine for a while, unless your looking for an exuse for a new truck lol

what about a cracked block or a cracked head? it was fine before it sat for a while (9 months, started and ran every other week), then they put new oil in it and everything when he sold it to his brother. It just now got the nasty mayo thing going on in there. Seems to run fine, a little rough idle.

Ummmm looks to me to just be your typical condensation forming in the engine from short trips/not getting up to temp.

See it everyday at work.

You think that's bad you should see the oil cap on an 04 F150 that doesn't get warmed up very often in the winter. They look the same way. As for that one. Is the oil in the crankcase that color or is it normal color. If it's not like that then I would make sure the pcv system is working properly.
