Question about 2003 Volkswagen New Beetle Convertible
Hi, I would get other opinions, but it sounds to me like the water is getting into the oil system. This could be via a small leak in the head gasket, in the oil cooler (do you have one?) or somewhere else I can't think of. My best guess is that it is happening in the return side of the oil circulation system where the pressure is lower than that in the cooling system.
I would either read the label on the "stop leak" or speak with an experienced mechanic, or both, before using it. They might suggest running the engine with the coolant cap slack for a while to avoid pressure build up which might blow the stop leak into your oil system, with unpredicatable results.
When you have fixed the leak you might think about changing the oil or at least the oil filter. Hope this helps you a bit more.
Good Luck, D
