I have an '85 900 4-dr with a 16v n/a out of an '87 in it. Changed the oil today because the top of the dipstick looked like it was coated in chocolate milk. I'm thinking head gasket, but there may be another possibility.

Is there any possibility that the PCV valve being rigged and incorrect could cause this? Because the one on this car isn't right. I have the parts to make it right, but I'm just trying to figure out if I need to be pulling the head off my car this weekend, because my 9000 is currently being exposed to salt, so I need to get this 900 up and running so the 9k can go into storage for salt season.
TIA

Condensation goop carmel color is pretty normal in c900s, was the oil still black? If so you just needed an oil change.

The oil was black, but it didn't look good. It had some brown swirls in it once it was in the drain pan.

EDIT: It also had bubbles in it, which I've never seen changing the oil in everything else I've ever changed oil in.
