Question about Computers & Internet
I have a 2007 980cc 4 cylinder engine that's getting water in the engine oil. What is a cheap fix?
A 2007 with water in oil..? Wow.. Are you running it for 5 to 20 mins then shutting off? This type of short run time can result in a lot of condensation in the crank case.. This will give you the tell tale foam around filler cap. You will need to run the engine long enough to get good and hot .. say at least an hour, couple times a week, to boil out the condensation.
IF that is NOT the case, then it's likely the head gasket is failed, and coolant is entering the crank case. Or possibly another seal of similar importance. Thick white exhaust is a very strong indicator of blown head gasket.

Hello and Welcome to FixYa.com
you must have the 2.7 liter engine if so the weep hole for the water pump is inside the engine and yes the water pump goes out and leaks anti freeze and water into engine causing it to sludge up. depending on how long you ran engine with water in it depends on how long engine will last. if not long you should be ok. i would remove the oil pan and clean the oil pump screen and pan. the estimate is correct. the water pump is in line with the timing chain. i would replace the chain and guides while in there as well. flush engine after all is done. use the cheap oil to run engine and add flush then drain and add synthetic oil for high mileage engine. I own one and i had the same problem. i drilled through the timing plate a hole and braised a little pipe to the weep hole to water pump so for the next time the pump leaks it will leak outside of the engine.
