Head Gasket or Intake Manifold Gasket

So Im having more fun with my truck again. 2006 v6
Not sure where the issue is. I have a warrenty so Im not entirely worried, though I am curious.
I do have evapourate residue on my oil cap and down the filler stem, however I did an oil change and there is no evidence in the oil. I also did my sparkplugs at the same time and did not see any evidence there as well.

Looking for some input.
Anyone seen this before?

+1

Need to evaporate the moisture from your oil so the PCV system can process it.

Are you serious???
This shit could be normal?
Hmm I am actually now a little more frustrated then before.
Lets build an engine that will make some frappé topping at the same time, these americans will shit bricks.
Well thanks for the great input. Ill let you know if my engine shits the bed.

It is normal, if you take short drives that don't allow the engine to get hot enough to burn off moisture in the crank case.

Any idea if its bad. No moisture in the oil is really good but should I take the time and run a few hundred Kms every weekend in the winter?

Hasn't cause any damage to me and my filler cap has looked like that all 50,000 miles I've driven it.

I would keep an eye on your oil level as well as coolant level just in case but generally this appears with short trips. I wouldn't go too out of your way to get it really warmed up. This small amount of moisture shouldn't cause too much harm to your engine.

In a cold enough climate, even long trips won't eliminate it. The long filler neck is really why this happens, it creates a cool spot for the moisture to condense. Look down the tube with a light, there won't be any "mayonaise" below the botton of the tube.

I change my oil at 3-4k in winter instead of 5-7k in summer. You aren't going to change the way you drive so might as well change the oil. It is not common in warm weather so if it persists in summer look deeper.
