So recently i changed the oil. I was useing yamalube and the stock oil filter. I wanted to change my oil the stealership is outrages for oil so i went with lucas GTX 10w40 and a wix filter. When i changed my oil I really didnt pay mutch attention to it like i should have but i put the new filter on and put the new oil in seemed to work just fine. But lastnight I just got bored and checked the oil to find out it was so milky it was like water.. Could this be the new oil? Im really hopeing its not a head gasket or a cracked head. can anyone help or has anyone had a problem like this?

It's not the new oil...It could be the water pump O ring, or a head gasket..among other things.

FYI, it should not be the water pump seal unless the weep hole is plugged.

Just a thought. :) .
I should have stated that better - CHECK the weep hole to see if its plugged... if so, it could be a leaking water pump seal thats putting coolant in the oil, else it's not.

The coolant is fine. i took the water pump apart yesterday and everything seems fine. i guess its just time for a new top end :(

Oh i will be lol when i get the money to do a new top end. see no point in just replaceing the head gasket or a cracked head and not getting a new piston and all that.
