Have a compression test done to check for head gasket or cracks . have a pressure test done on the coolant system to test for coolant leaks in the aluminium parts that lead to the sump. If you have an automatic check the oil cooler in the radiator.

Why would oil and water leak out of my Lincoln navigator 5.4l engine

Worse case this could be due to a blown head gasket - however let not jump to conclusions. Where is the oil coming from and did you have it changed recently? Water is common from the A/C condenser and or over fill of the wiper fluid or possibly rain / bad oil change place that "rinses the engine" with water to get excess oil off. If you did have your oil changed / car serviced, take it back and have them check it. Maybe it's a loose oil filter or loose oil drain plug / bad washer on the drain plug. If you haven't have the oil changed recently, did you hit anything or did the car over heat recently? To see if you blew a gasket, check your overflow tank coming off the radiator. Pop the cap and look inside to see if you see oil (not dirty water / coolant). Also check if the car is blowing blueish smoke or excessive white smoke when you drive / rev the motor. If not, hopefully your fine. Post more details and you'll get a better answer. Good luck!

I was putting oil in my car and realized it was actually water and dirt in an old bottle. I haven't driven yet. What do i do?

take some clean oil maybe 2 or 3 quarts and pour into the engine. the clean oil will wash the dirt and water into the oil pan. then drain the oil,change the filter, and refill with new oil. you where very observant to notice the problem and very smart not to drive the car.

Accidentally got alot of water in oil filler cap and ran it. the car shakes now. is there anything i can do

Drain the oil and change the filter. Water in the oil filler cap will not cause the car to shake. I suspect you got water in some electronics. After you change the oil/filter keep driving the vehicle and this may clear up. If not seek professional help.

Milky oil in water but car runs fine

This is classic case failed head gasket. You changed your oil 4 years ago?

There is more to this story I think. Maybe you changed the transmission oil 4 years ago and and now you have water in the trans? Not good. You have trans oil in the radiator? Not good. You have engine oil in the radiator? Not good. You have water in the engine? Not good. You have engine and trans oil in the radiator? Doubble not good.

You should have a reputable shop take a look at your 22 year old car to see if it is salvagable.

Water entered inside the gerabox after aflood

The oil needs to be drained from the gear box. If there is water in the transmission, you should probably change the oil in the front and rear axles and the transfer case. If the oil looks like a "milkshake"there is water in it. You will get most the water out in the first oil change, but drive it for a while after the first change and then change it again to get as much out as you can. You can do a ton of damage by driving a vehicle around like this, so don't put it off.

Water in the oil

oil floats on water. The filter will catch some. Keep an eye on the oil until your next oil change. If it become a milky/foamy/brown color, then change it. When water mixes with oil, it will turn this color.u should empty your tank then to fill it again.since u didn't drive the can the problem can be a less battery power so be ready to loud your battery.
