Q: Gas mixed in engine oil

asked by on

The gas got mixed in the engine oil. How do I fix that?

With the gas getting into the oil, this vehicle needs repair before it is driven further, engine damage be a result if one continues to drive. The answer to this question could differ depending on how the gas was added to the oil. If the gas was mistakenly put in the oil, then the oil would need to be changed until all traces of the gas is gone as it will ruin the engine. If the car is getting gas into the oil without outside help than it is possible that there is a stuck open fuel injector that is causing to much gas to be induced into the engine cylinder. A certified technician would be able to diagnose how the gas got mixed in with your oil.
