Re: Smoking 5KCSTQ ??

    I suppose the question is why remove your oil filler cap and expose
your engine internals to debris for however short a period?  Also why risk
losing oil out of your engine at the same time while making a mess of your
engine compartment! 
    As far as I know, milky white residue is not an indication of water in
your oil, as it would usually burn/evaporate off at engine temp, unless
lots of water got in while driving around with no filler cap! 
    The real problem to look for is choclate milk looking oil,  indicating
coolant in the oil.  Good luck and keep your oil system closed.
