Help!! Slime on Oil fill cap
Hey all well I'm back from the catpan and hopefully for good. I was finally able to do some maintainance on my "Brandie". So I went ahead and got Mobil 1 ans a Purolater (sp) Filter, man talk about feeling good to be doing something myself on her it was GREAT!! So the wife went to Juffy lube last summer and supposedly got their Premier or top of the line oil change with Pennsoil synthetic which is suppose to be a good oil right?? We had ran her about 5200 miles since they changed it. (I know,I know should have changed it earlier, bought a house and moved no time plus Christmas was here and all.)
So I take off the filter some no-name POS and drain the pan and it is blacker than roofing tar. WTF?? I've been running synthetic for the last 5 or 6 oil changes and never had that happen. That wasn't the worst thing I go to take off the fillcap and it's on there like they used a filter wrench on it. Got it off and on the underside there is this thick creamy yellow crud on the bottom of the cap and there is some along the upper neck where it screws into. I wiped it out and it felt kind of like water wet not oil wet. There isn't any milky substance in the oil pan or any that got drained out with the oil. She runs fine, anyone got an idea on what could cause this?? I'll be checking it a lot to make sure it's good to go, but I'm worried as to what caused it to scum up like that?? Only me doing oil changes on her from now on.
please let me know if anyone can tell me what it is, H-
