Q: My antifreeze in the resovoir looks milky and I open the radiator cap and the antifreeze began to rise a little and wasn’t as much

asked by on

As soon as I turned the car off I noticed the fan still running so I cut it off and restarted it. It began to over heat so I cut it off I checked the resovoir and it looks milky I opened the radiator cap and coolant began to rise a little and had some mixture to it so I checked the oil it was low but no coolant I just changed the oil a week ago and it still looks clear what could be wrong

My car has 138000 miles.
