If you found water in oil car , this water engine car section is for you!

Water in car engine? Water should never be allowed to get into the oil in your engine or gearbox. Otherwise, it will result in significant foaming, dramatically reducing the product's lubrication properties.

Water in the engine - Water can get into your oil sump in two ways:

  • Water in car - Water condensation in cold air or combustion gases: this phenomenon is extremely rare and only occurs at specific temperatures.
  • Water in the oil - Coolant leak due to non-watertight seal (cylinder head gasket, etc.). If this happens, there is a leak and water is getting into the oil.

Water in motor oil can cause serious damage to your engine – the oil will be denatured and no longer effectively cooled.
