The engine would run rough at idle and you would more than likely see water in the oil.
Customer: replied 8 years ago.

Would the oil be thinner then?

Expert:  Anthony replied 8 years ago.
Not exactly, it would look like a chocolate milkshake.
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
So just doing an oil change would show if it has water in it?

Just looking at the oil on the dipstick will tell you. The oil on the stick will look whiteish, brown.
