Re: Water in Oil -- Uh-Oh! - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
It's probably fine. Condensation forms in engines during drastic temperature swings (like we've been having on the east coast lately) from the moisture contained in piston ring blowby, and cars that are started and run cold on short trips (such as one might do in Brooklyn) are quite susceptible to this. I often get a streak of mayo on the dipstick from condensate. It happens most in the Volvo, least in the Honda, and some in the Saab. It can be disconcerting to say the least. Just change your oil more often. I bet everything's fine.
