Crankcase hose - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
I had a cracked hose from the crankcase to the intake manifold. I had what looked like a milkshake when I removed the dipstick. The whole inside of the dipstick tube was filled with the frothy stuff. I changed the oil and it look OK. I ran the car again and the milkshake showed up on the dipstick again. Turned out the moisture was not being drawn into the intake manifold, but was blowing out the dipstick tube. Once the cracked hose was replaced, the dipstick and tube are moisture free. I was thinking the worst such as a cracked head or head gasket failure.
