I was wondering can condensation set in a oil pan when a truck sits for excessive years( i.e. 13yrs) without starting. When I checked the oil before starting was black then became milky when started. I did have to add coolant prior to startup roughly 5 gallons but when I started the truck no coolant loss still at same level, this is on a 8v92, any thoughts?

Ok but will it come from condensation from sitting for extended periods of sitting as in my previous post?

Since that oil is going to have to be drained anyway, pull the pan and really clean out all the junk, and with the pan down, pressurize the cooling system.
While it is a great hope that the moisture got in there from some external source it is highly unlikely, and now is the time to find out where it came from.

With pan down and system pressurized, if coolant leaks at right front corner, water pump seal is bad . Early water pumps had a drilled bleed hole in the front prone to getting clogged. So coolant would leak by oil seal intro block cavity .
