99 camaro. milky oil.

Ok guys I have a 99 camaro v-6 that has continued to have milky oil. Replaced head gasket, upper plenum gasket, lower intake gasket and water pump. I also had intakes and heads checked out. Does any one have any ideas?

Does it have a oil cooler? Also did you have the heads checked to see if they were warped?

A number of things could have happens during install. Also the head gasket could have failed. Don't happen often but I have seen them fail. Also the head bolts could have not been torqued in proper sequence.

I thought that too, checked all gaskets and torqued them to gm specs, my last option is to take it to work tomorrow and have it tested and see what the problem is, worst case would be cracked engine block, no big deal just means i found my summer project, lol

You did use new head bolts when you re-installed the heads right? the factory head bolts are TTY (torque to yield) one time use bolts.

well aside from a leaking oil cooler, it pretty much sounds like you have a crack in the block then.
