Question about 1998 Volkswagen Jetta
I have a 98 jetta 2.0 that shows water in the oil in the valve cover, though the oil itself is not white. I have not noticed any use of coolant, so I think the water is coming in from somewhere else, maybe a PCV valve or intake gasket. What do ya think?
Hi, seems you do not drive lot.You need to go drive in highway.That is normal condesation and from hot oil evap and water condesation turn like white mixer at oil cap and valve cover.

Hello it,s quite possible that water is getting in around the rubber grommet that holds the pvc on the valve cover ,also if you wash or hose down/degrease your engine their is always a chance of water getting in to an area like that ,Engines especially 4 cyl get wickedly hot and hoses and anything rubber gets brittle over time and starts to crack and shrink exposing areas that would allow water to get in under presure ,also make shure all the rubber seals around the hood area are in good condition ,not allowing water from rainto get in ,A cracked block will always let you know with the sign of antifreeze in the oil ,Well i wish you the best and hope i was able to give you a few things to start with and troubleshoot ,just take your time and search very carefully ,chances are you will find something that can be causing the water in the oil , Let me know how you made out ,Good luck ,Sincerely Glenn
