Default 1997 Honda accord v6 has chocolate milk like substance in radiator!!?

So yesterday i went to check my water in the radiator and i realized the color of it was a milky brown, but the car runs fine and nothing seems to be wrong with it, please help in giving me ideas on what it can be cus i have no clue, i am going to dry and clean the system and see if the problem still persists

but this motor on this car was replaced 3 months ago, shouldn't i just take it back where they did the job and have them look at it and fix it?? it should still be under warranty

If i kept driving my car as it is just occasionally replacing the coolant and adding oil to the engine how long would it last without any repairs?

Head gasket. I wouldn't fix it, just drive it till it dies. Perhaps a jar of head gasket sealer will get you another year, good luck

There is the possibility that the engine they installed was already rusty and corroded. To determine if you have a problem, have a cylinder leak down test performed. If it passes have the cooling system flushed with a two part cleaner and then use a rust inhibitor and 50/50 mix of coolant and water . First determine the nature of the problem and then decide on a course of action. Good Luck
