OIL FILLER CAP COVERED IN A KIND OF FROTH WHEN TAKEN OF THE ROCKER COVER, COULD IT BE THE HEAD GASKET BLOWN OR LEAKING, BUT THE COOLANT DOES NOT LOSE ANY WATER AT ALL. JUST HAD A RESENT OIL & FILTER CHANGE

Have a compression test of cylinders to check headgasket. Could just be a low cost oil was used in the oil change. Giving off excess vapour !
