    headgasket you are more likely to get water in your oil, because the water could be leaking into your cylinders and leaking down through the gaps in your rings. What kind of car is it?

    to get the water out you have to put the car in neutral and rev the engine to redline for about an hour and then all the water will be gone and problem fixed

    do you take a lot of short trips with it?
    that's condensation from the engine not warming up completely. usually happens when you only drive for 20 or so minutes at a time and then let it cool down again. you can build up quite a bit if you don't take it on long drives every now and again. i wouldn't be concerned unless there was a LOT of water in the bottom of the oil pan and you're puffing white smoke out the pipe after it's fully warmed up.

    to really diagnose you'd need to do a pressure test in the rad, compression test for every cylinder, and check the condition of the spark plugs. if one plug is white or completely clean when the rest show normal wear, it's that head or head gasket.

    Please don't do this!!! you will ruin your engine, you need to check your cylinders for holding pressure, if it is a cracked head you will notice one or more cylinders showing low pressure. You will have to take the heads off anyway if they are cracked, so you will have to replace the head gasket in the process of reassembling the engine. DO not run your car unless you absolutely have to otherwise you will have to tear down the bottom end to replace your oil pump, rings and bearings.

    Most likely the head gasket. I doubt you're going to have a cracked anything :roll: Condensation in the engine doesn't build up like that, only in the exhaust. Water in the oil is sign of a head gasket leak. Same thing should be in your radiator. Do you see oil mixed with the antifreeze when you pop the radiator cap?

    Sometimes there can be traces of water in the oil/around the cap etc.. without the headgasket blowing, for instance if your car is only used for short stop/start journeys.

    You can get a testing kit to check the water or do a compression test to check for leaks.
