Frothy oil V70-XC70 1999

1999 V70 T5M, with 169,000 miles.

The oil on my dipstick seems excessively frothy. I first noticed it when checking the oil after changing oil and starting the engine to check for leaks. Crankcase is definitely not overfilled. There is no noticeable coolant loss. I pressure tested the cooling system (engine cold) and after pressurizing to 20.2 pounds, it was at 19.5 pounds after 5 minutes, so that seems OK. Using Mobil One 10W-30, same as always.

I was pleased to see someone post that head gasket problems are unlikely on this motor.

Any thoughts? I was planning to go on a 1,000 mile trip in 2 days, but now I'm thinking I had better not risk it.
