Hi there. I have a 2004 Elantra with 96k miles and now it seems that all hell has broken loose. I'm getting about a teaspoon of foam on the oil cap and a small line on the dipstick. I so far have replaced the spark plugs, replaced the air filter, and now I am going to take out and replace the pcv valve.

The car will idle for about 5-10 mins and then conks out. I do not want to rush ahead and blame it on the head gasket just yet. Tomorrow I am going to check the thermostat because there might be a coolant circulating issue too. I am running out of possible solutions.

Anyone have any ideas on the matter?

almost no doubt its the head gasket...it looks like chocolate milk right?? i would also pull the rad cap...it to will have it. I would not run the car anymore. The coolant will strip away the oil on the cylinder walls and will kill it.
