Is the white stuff on the top part of the dipstick only and the oil looks good on the tip or is the oil on the tip also creamy white?

Usually either a blown head gasket, warped head or both. Could even be a cracked head or block. Hopefully just a head gasket.

There is a test that can be pruchased that will turn a chemical a color if there is exhaust gasses in the coolant. With it running hot I would guess a head gasket issue. It sounds like it is going to be a fun project. I got to do it on a Chevy Astro 4.3 v6. I would not wait if left unfixed it could cause more problems.

In certain high humidity climates and with certain driving habits it is possible to get this white creamy residue on the oil filler cap and on the upper part of the dipstick just from condenstation. This is why my questions. The big question is what does the oild look like on the business enf of the dipstick that is in the oil. Does that look like normal oil?

I would do a chem check to see if exhaust gas is entering cooling system before opening engine. Intake gasket is my first choice, along with a bad fan clutch.

Hmm, you have a cracked head or block or blown head gasket. You need to do a compression check on all your cylinders to find out of it is a head gasket or not. Most likely you will find two adjacent cylinders reading low.

Check the PCV system. If it is clogged, or loose, or diconnected, it will not vacuum away gasses AND water condensation from the crankcase.

I have seen this happen, and cause your problem. This would be the LEAST expensive repair that COULD be your problem.

Asked at motor shop about getting them to fix the head gasket said it would be about $2600 if there could get the engine out the front of the of the 92 four winds
Can you not fix the head gasket with out taking the motor out ??

Back in 1981, while wrenching at a shop, I pulled the heads off 454ci class A's every week. Another guy did the valve job, then I put them back on. Off took about 5hrs, on, another 5hrs. ALWAYS just the heads.

I was good at it, so for the average guy at home, give yourself 8hrs off, and 8hrs on. I also did my V-8 in Ford van 3 times over 10 yrs.

Its just WORK. Heavy heads to lift OUT of the vehicle. Get help. Have the needed tools. Clean the block REALLY good.

Replace everything while you're there. Vacuum hoses, plugs, wires, cap, rotor, vacumm advance if it has one, etc, etc.

Be sure to route everything back in place so nothing touched the exhaust.
