I was thinking condensation cause it wasnt warm .

Water in crankcase from, non-coolant, will appear as a white emulsion on the oil fill cap, looks like Elmer's glue


if the oil on the dip stick was milky you might head gasket problem. but if it was just on the bottom of the cap you might not have a problem. that is just moisture build up. if you are loosing coolant and don't know where it's going. it might be going in your oil.


Bottom of the cap and not on the dipstick, probably not a problem. Is it losing coolant?
