How to check for water in oil
How does everyone check their oil for water? Do y'all pull samples to look at it or can you just shine a light down in the oil tank? I shined a light down in mine just to check it but I can't really tell anything...just looks like oil lol. When its milky is it a definite white color? I've never actually seen any oil that had water in it so I don't really know what to compare to. When I googled milky oil all the pictures showed pretty much solid white oil. I'm guessing that if their were to be water in there it would be a definite yes when shining a light in...am i right? Thanks for the help.

If the oil has been sitting a while and there is water in it you may see white swirls in it. If it is after the engine is run think of it as putting milk into chocolate syrup. the more milk the less chocolate color you get. The oil will get less brown if that helps with water. The best way is if you think you got water in it is to drain it and look at it. better safe than sorry in my opinion. don't forget if you do have water make sure to change the filter as well cause they hold water.
