changed my oil on the weekend and I noticed this. Could it be due to the engine not getting hot enough, as in not driving the car for any extended lengths of time? Is this more of a winter thing, cuz I never saw this last year. TIA

Um, ok? I asked a simple question. No need for the sarcasm.

i'm not an expert at all
but the fact that your oil looks like coffee+cream colour is bad...
it could be your head gasket.
is the oil this colour? or just the residue under the cap?

the oil is normal colour. I just noticed this stuff under the cap and in the reservoir but it's above the line. I'm thinking it might be moisture building up in that pocket of air between the oil and the cap.

It dam cold and monkey jizz happens b/c of condesation, the engine dosent get hot enough to evaporat the moisture, unless your head gasket is blown,
nothing to worry about for now, ITS TO COLD

I've got the same thing my friend. Don't worry. It's harmless! I spoke to my dealer when I first discovered it. Apparently the 'Monkey Jizz' is from not getting the car up to full operating temperature, by way of short trips and cold weather. Hamilton Volkswagen has assured me that this "Jizz' has no ill affects and will cause no harm. So far, no problems, and I don't expect any either. Happy dubbin!
