Yes it is a head gasket but also should I overhaul the entire cooling system as well? Because it had a habit of overheating unless the car was idling down a hill

Milky residue on the filler cap indicates water in the oil.

Have you checked the oil on the dipstick after the car has been running and warmed up?

When was the last time you changed your oil?

it's condensation from water in the system ...... to make sure go to a radiator joint & see about getting the coolant system pressure checked. this should let ya know if & maybe where the problem is

Hi guys I'm here with another update on the car I have noticed this thing called liquid intelligence 245 and the makers claim that if put in correctly there is a 90 percent chance that it would work I reckon I should give it a go
