Okay, so I recently bought a rebuilt long block 22re and put it in, the head-gasket blew on my old motor and over heated and so on... anyways, I just hit the 500 mile mark on my new engine and decided it was time to change the oil. Much to my dismay, I found milky residue on the inside of my oil cap again! So of course I instantly started worrying and thoroughly checked the freshly drained oil. After my last head gasket went, there was milky residue in the cap AND in the oil, but I was unable to find any traces of water in the oil I just drained (dumped it from bucket to bucket after settling). Sooo..... should I be worried? Is it another blown headgasket (VERY premature... only 480 miles on engine) or could it have just been water residue on the internal parts that accumulated during the tear down? I personally didn't touch the head-gasket itself at all... it came to me already put on. Thanks for any help...
