    I don't see any milk shake on the dip stick, and I can't really see any oil in the coolant. So my next step is to take off the valve cover and give it a look or should I change the oil and see? Anything else you guys think I should do before I panic and say it's headgasket time?
    Take the head off.

    Lol. JK. I'd do a compression or leakdown test to be sure. Leakdown would be the better of the two.
