yes, the engine is not getting up to operating temperature. Milky oil will show typical on a car driven on short rides not letting the car warm up properly. best to drive it 20-30mins at a time.

strange someone would remove the stat unless the car had an overheating problem that they couldn't fix. might want to explore that problem a little bit too.
