I have a 2002 ford mustang gt. And the oil in the fill valve looks like it has chocolate milk in it. And the oil smells like gas. What could be the problem.

Do you
have the same problem?

When you say fill valve I am presuming you are meaning the oil filler cap? And no the exhaust will not cause this, but it should be repaired as well as a leaking exhaust is a serious health problem.

Remove the Air cleaner outlet tube
Disconnect the tube from the PCV valve
Remove PCV valve and check, replace if needed
Re-install tube assembly onto the PCV valve

Get a head check done, this is a simple chemical test for exhaust gasses in the cooling system, if positive this will indicate a head problem, a coolant system pressure test will locate any external coolant leaks, do both these test as well.
