Hi Deshawnda. Thanks for contacting us today. Although some "mechanics" recommend using a liquid head gasket sealer, the truth is that 80% of the time - it doesn’t completely do the job - or it causes additional problems. These sealers are designed to fill the gaps from a blown head gasket, but can also cause restrictions in the radiator, oil galleys or other mechanical components. If you still have milky oil, then it’s more than likely that the head gasket leak still exists. Adding more will not likely help this issue. You’ll need to either have the head gasket repaired or part ways with the vehicle, as it’s likely that the cost of repair will exceed the current value of your BMW.
