Creamy oil means water in the oil, which means cracked something, i.e. Gasket or head or block or intake. Take it to a mechanic and get the oil changed and the old oil analyzed QUICKLY! The longer it runs with water in the oil, the faster the motor will burn up. It's not something you want to mess with. You shouldn't really start it at all until you get it diagnosed.
Sorry Dude! you have troubles now. Good Luck

i'm on my 2nd ford f-150 over the last 17 years and i can tell you that i've had that problem with my 84' and my 97' model. each time the problem was caused by a clogged pvc hose or clogged pvc valve. good luck and let me know if that is your problem also.
This has been happening to some peeps on the vw site I frequent. From what has been said there, if you live in a cold climate, and take a lot of short drives, the oil does not get up full operating temp, so the condensation that develops while it is cold doesn't get a chance to burn off. I've never had it happen to me cause I do a lot of commuting. This is just what I've been hearing. Hope it helps.
It is true. The short drives in cool moist climates will cause the condensation. Checking the PCV is a good idea. I have also heard that if you use certain oils that contain high detergents it can cause this as well. I was told Quaker State is bad for it. Maybe check with Bob the oil guy at his website.
grover is right.
dont panic man my 98 has done that since new. if its white its just a little condensation trying to escape. I dont know about a murky brown color. Change the oil and put in good oil such as Mobil 1, and wipe out the fillter neck wiht a clean rag and run it for a while and see if it comes back. Theres a cahnce that its normal that your truck has this due to short trips in colder weather. Never know, could be a serious prob though, but mine has been that way since new.

yup...noticed this on my 85 a few months ago. doesn't get driven much, only short trips now and then (maybe 4K miles a year if that) and the dip stick was all rusty too. Took it in for them to check it out, they said it was just condensation from running short trips. they recommended that i change the oil soon though to have some new stuff in there. i used to only change the oil in my 85 once a year cuz it only gets 3-4K on it, but now i'll be doing it twice a year no matter how few miles
