It was refilled with 1.7 qts. The foam was creamy beige. Another interesting development. A small coolant leak has emerged some where in the lower cradle behind the skid plate. Need to investigate.
Thanks for your response..........
I doubt you have any water in your oil. It appears to have been just overfilled and it aireated. This will whip it into a foam and it will expand and runeth over. Drain it down, let the bubbles work their way out and you'll be OK. As for your coolant leak. I'd guess a water pump seal. Mine only had 90 miles when it started to dribble. I towed it in an open trailer in below freezing weather and when I started it up, shortly afterwards, it leaked a little. I suspect the seal was cold and hard, and as pressure built up along with heat, it softened the seal and the pressure helped it to seal tight and it didnt leak again. But I have ordered me 2 extra seals to have on hand now.
