ok...I got a 91 2.5L...I started gettin a little lifter tap noise...so i checked the oil and had alot of rust on the dipstick...oil was fine..also around pcv valve was watery oil..had that oily water look...then today i checked the oil again and now the oil in the pan is startin to get that creamy look to it....it doesnt tick when i first start it...but when it reaches norma temps it starts...and its not consistant...its quiet then loud then quiet then real loud then stops for a bit..then starts again...what the hell is the prob...i cant stand noisy engines...almost wanna blow it up so i have excuse to rebuild it...any help would be nice and appreciated....and also air filter looks like engine puked oil ad little water into it....all over the top of the filter
Usually water in the oil is indicative of a head gasket gone bad. Does it overheat at all?

no it doesnt overheat...it doesnt smoke like alot is in the cylinders or anything...there is just enough in the pan that it shows a little on the dipstick...when i pull dipstick it is the brown milky look along the edge of the stick.
