Q: I have water in my oil and need to fix the problem.

asked by on

There is water in my oil. Why? How do I fix this problem?

This problem is not an easily fixed problem. I would not recommend driving the car any more until a qualified technician can determine the problem. Water in the oil is a sign that you may have a blown head gasket or a cracked or warped block or head.
