In Reply to: Moisture in Oil? posted by jasonmesq on January 03, 2001 at 23:36:04:
My Mcoupe has almost 50,000 miles and I changed to Mobil 1 about five thousand ago. No significant coolant loss (One quart over last year), spark plugs are consistent. No significant oil consumption.
Queston 1: is it possible that moisture is building up in there due to the cold conditions, or due to my short trips during the winter? (I live in Dallas where we have had a cold winter, but high humidity)
Question 2: would the presence of this moisture have anything to do with the fresh change to synthetic oil? (is this perhaps from old natural oil "burning" off?)
Any knowledgeable insight would be appreciated, before I spend money on testing.
thanks in advance
