V6 WATER IN ENGINE OIL


My first kneejerk guess would be that you have a blown head gasket. Cross-contamination of the oil and coolant is the clue here. If the engine has ever overheated (Temp light comes on) then that would be the likely cause. Expensive repair unless you're mechanically inclined

Sounds like something is drawing power from the battery when you are not driving your car. Check interior lights, head lights, brake lights, aftermarket stereo or trailer wiring.

Oil light in 1999 Toyota camry comes on when idling.


bad to worn out oil pump or excessive oil passage clearances that allowing more oil to pass thru them at a lower pressure due to the bigger opening. It can be a sign of an emminant engine failure due to oil starvation.

Whats going on


most likely the problem is you have blowby. the oil is coming up past your worn piston oil rings which is causing oil everywheres. start your car and remove the oil dipstick and see if oil comes out. if not you need a engine rebuild or new used motor which would be cheaper in the long run.
