hi, I recently bought a 2011 kia forte koup with the 2.0 engine. I bought the car with a knock and when I pulled the engine and took off the valve cover I found that my camshafts where rusting in a few places, what look to be like a misting of water on the cams and thick milky oil built up in some spots. when I drained the oil out after pulling the engine and right before I took the valve cover off the oil look to be completely fine not milky. on closer inspection it looked like the moisture had been getting carried up by the timing chain. I'm going to pull apart the engine more when I have more time, but I have never seen this happen before and was wondering if anyone else has ever had a similar problem. anything would help thanks.
