Ok,

So as most of you know My rad fans come and stay on and the car doesn't reach opt temp anymore. I went to check out the Car to see if when the guy undercoated my car he may of unplugged something. As i start the car, turn it off, Start the car, turn it off I open my Oil cap to Find white yellowish gunk buildup. I feared the worst for the LIM but my oil is clear. Its only around the spout of the filler holy in the valve cover. The oil inside the Valve cover look great but around the filler hold there is the white yellowish gunk build-up. Im freaked to **** right now because it is x-mas and a LIM job is not in the Budget right now. Pics to follow. I think its because my car never gets to burn off the condensation buildup because it never reaches opt. temp due to a open thermostat? Someone please help.

Well see thats the thing. My oil i perfect and clear. Checked it a few times too. Its only around the oil filler hole which leads me to believe that its more condensation not being burnt off because my engine is not getting hot enough due to what seems to be a bad thermostat. I looked all around the inside of the valve cover and the rest of the oil looks good. Looks at the other pics for what I mean. My opt. temp only gets to about 3 bars from nothing.

Probably condensation from the cold weather.

Probably condensation from the cold weather.

Idk, Mine was doing the same thing, But mine was overheating a bit, And My oil looks clean, but in valve covers its pretty disgusting/oil cap.
