Must be rip off
Expert:  Matt replied 1 year ago.
hello another expert hereTim is correct in saying that a very likely source of water into the oil is a ruptered oil cooler as these are made up of many layers with oil and water running in between for cooling and they can corrode internally and split and then allow the two fluids to mixso I'd say to replace that next
