Water should never be allowed to get into the oil in your engine or gearbox.
Otherwise, it will result in significant foaming, dramatically reducing the product's lubrication properties.

Water can get into your oil sump in two ways:

  • Water condensation in cold air or combustion gases: this phenomenon is extremely rare and only occurs at specific temperatures.
  • Coolant leak due to non-watertight seal (cylinder head gasket, etc.). If this happens, there is a leak and water is getting into the oil.

This can cause serious damage to your engine – the oil will be denatured and no longer effectively cooled. Contact your repair centre as soon as possible.
