    In your climate, condensation is almost impossible to stop unless you garage the vehicle and use an engine heater which is available at your local dealership. Barring any coolant leaks into the engine, Condensation is a major cause of the thick yellowish ooze, usually found in the oil filler cap. If the condition is found on the dipstick or is visble inside of the valve cover, you may have a blown head gasket or other internal leak. oil on the airfilter is normal blowby. Unless the filter is saturated in oil, it should not be of concern. You did not mention if you have a stock filter or aftermarket filter.
