light brown, milky liquid

I have a 2001 Ford Ranger 3.0L and it just recently started making a loud squeaking sound and leaking this light brown, milky type liquid. Anyone have any idea what it might be? And/or some quick, easy, and cheap fixes?

You've got Oil in your Antifreeze. Where is it leaking from?

Get a uv leak kit like 25$ at Autobone. Pour in the die. Drive around. Go home. Turn light on. Look for glowing

I had the same issue on my 4.0. Mine was the passenger side CV seal leaking. It looks like chocolate milk. Hopefully thats what your leak is, its a 15.00 seal but you will have to pull everything apart to get to it

With everyone saying its here or here, look and see where your fluid levels are before you tear into your motor. However it does sound like oil/antifreeze contamination.
