    Here's something I haven't seen before:

    That yellow-y stuff seems to be mucus, for lack of a better word. It's slimy, and it's coating my oil filler neck and cap.

    Does my truck have a sinus infection, or is it something more sinister?

    yup mine looks like that too.

    I agree, I have had this problem in the past with different vehicles, I found that sometimes changing brands of oil (I said sometimes) would clear it up, Not sure but I think some vehicles just don't run hot enough to to get rid of the condensation or some oils require a higher temp to deplete it. Short drives will also contribute to this problem. I don't know if it would be a problem or not, but I just didn't like the looks of it, (jmop) Doc
