I have found a light colored substance in the oil filler cap of my 1965 VW 1600. I believe it is caused by condensation. What can I do about this and is there anything I can do about this?

Do you
have the same problem?

When was last time oil changed?

You might have damage on your seals. Excessive water in gas or a bad headgasket.

Also be a crack in a line. Bad grommets for pcv valve and breather valve.

Or just simply from heating and cooling of the engine.
