Default White oily residue in the valve cover/oil

My Buddie has a 93 Del Sol. Lately he said that his car has been running like crap. So he came by and funny as soon as he pulled into my Drive Way, It turned off! He tried to start it till the Battery Died (Battery is Bad too). So I started to check things out. I pulled to Dip Stick to see the Oil (White oily). I Decided to Remove the Valve Cover and look at what I saw:







I kinda know what happened here Tomorrow I'll dig more and see what's up.

What do you guys think?

That's usually caused by condensation in the engine. Does he usually take short trips?

He just took on the Santa Barbara last week. He was over heating on his way to the Pad.

the car was over heating and that's probably why it melted.

Obviously it's the Head Gasket. A cheap one that was installed who ever did anything to this before. They cost like $15. I never recommend no one to get cheap parts, seals or Gaskets for Internals cause if it messes up, you have to pull everything out again

I didn't have a chance to get to it today. Maybe Mañana

Update: (I got home too damn late)
We cleaned the Surface of the Head and the Block. Cleansed the Oil Pan, Oil Pick up Tube and everything else that had Milkshake on it. Also I took as much water crap out of the Block as possible with compressed air (that was not Fun!)
New Head Gasket is on hand and will have more progress soon.

I will use the Same Head Bolts too

So we did some progress today.
Surfaced the Head and Block pretty smooth. Got the New Head Gasket on, Hooked everything back on (intake mani, exhaust mani, dizzy, wire connections, hoses, oil pan, etc.)
Couldn't get the Timing Belt on, it got too Dark so we called it a Day. Started pretty late, I went to the Junk Yard and I went to Harbor Freight to pick up a Torque Wrench for the Head Bolts.

My Pal needs to get some Oil and Antifreeze and everything should be ok. We'll see what happens.

10/04/08 Sat.
I used to same head bolts (just torqued them like 5 more pounds).
I removed the Motor mount to get to the Tensioner Bolt. Put Crank Pulley to TDC and the cam Gear to the Up Marks and hooked up the Timing Belt then tightened everything back.
Topped off fluids and she fired right up, but the idle is a tad low (I don't think it's ignition timing and the Timing Belt is on properly) and it doesn't want to accelerate (like if the transmission is slipping).
Still needs some more attention. Might be either the o2 sensor or a new Fuel Filter.
