Did you have a hard start or no start problem recently ? If you did you were dumping fuel into engine with no spark, which ends up sitting on top of the piston & eventually running down into the oil pan. If not, my guess is you have an injector(s) leaking down while sitting. Check your PCV is clean & working as well.

If you have too much gas running down past your pistons you will wash your rings out and you will have to pull the engine apart and replace the piston/rings

It sounds like you have an enemy that sabotaged your vehicle. The sand in the oil pan concerns me the most as major damage can be done in a short time with the engine running. The water in the gas tank is less of a worry because you can drain the tank and then add a couple bottles of Heet fuel conditioner which will cause any remaining water to mix with the fuel and burn away.

Oil Leak

I would change the air filter, the valve and possibly the oil cap. Also, change your oil filter, it may be clogged. Keep an eye on it just to be sure there isn't anything more serious.

Sounds typical of head gasket failure.

With this you get oil into cylinders / water into cylinders, burning oil, loosing water - but no leaks. "boiling" of radiator and overflows.

Check your coolant and oil levels - they will be low.

Get a few quotes for a head gasket replacement - and timing belt change, as it has to come off when you do this anyway & no sense putting an old one on - they often snap if retensioned.

If this solves your problem, please take a moment to rate as Fixya! thanks.
