    I started the car up and it was running rough like it was missing. I went one block and heard a tapping noise. I checked the engine oil all clear. I checked radiator all full.

    I pull the oil filler cap and its caramel milkshake. ... 20160112_170144.jpg 20160112_170133.jpg stranded on the side of the road...waiting on roadside assistance

    That sucks. Hope it is fixed as soon as possible. When was your car built? How many miles?

    You're doing the right thing. Get it towed in.

    Sorry to hear this hope it doesn't take long for them to get you back on the road. Sounds like a new motor.

    You could be getting moisture in through the filler neck or cap. if coolant and dipstick oil looks normal you know it's not your head gasket. Get it towed in and drive your loaner until it's fixed. That's why i won't do any mods that would void my warranty.

    That just looks like moisture condensation in your oil fill cap. Have you been driving lots of short trips in colder weather?

    The oil on your dipstick would show milkshake too if it was blown head gasket and water contaminated. Your radiator would be low as well.

    It's the missing and tapping noise in addition to the milkshake that would lead me to get it towed.
