Thanks eric08. You've given me something to consider.

Dexcool sludge seems to stick to the reservoir and is dull orange from the photos I've seen. What I saw was just a light skim of oil floating on the top; and it was not emulsified either. It didn't look like a milkshake at all.

I wish I would have take a photo for reference.
