the only thing to keep in mind is that if the PO used Zerex - G-05 which is an approved coolant, its more of a beer color, which when it gets dirty would probably turn brown. When I did mine between the Zerex, the Blue and and Green it was quite the interesting color. That said, milky is another problem i suppose unless you had the totally wrong coolant. I would maybe try a cooling system flush and overhaul, including a new water pump and thermostat and see. If you blew your head gasket (IIRC) you would have oily coolant, shitty power, and a lot of smoke.
Religion, Politics, and which oil is the best to use. Three things never to be discussed in polite company...
