Causes Of Water Mixing With Engine Oil by leeyack: 5:45pm On Sep 02, 2016
There are many factors that cause water to enter into the engine oil, including leaking intake manifold gaskets, cracked engine castings and a blown head gasket. One main reason, the formation of water as a petroleum byproduct, is part of normal engine operation
Even in completely sealed engines, water enters and forms condensation within the engine. For every gallon of petrol burned, a little more than a gallon of water vapor is formed as a byproduct. During the process of longer trips, the engine reaches its ideal operating temperature, and the heat makes any condensed water to evaporate. If the car travels only short trips, abnormal water accumulation can be caused because the engine does not get to a temperature that is sufficient to burn off the excess water.
If water is discovered to be mixing with the oil in a V-style engine that has intake manifolds sealed to the block, then the intake manifold water jacket gasket may be leaking into the inside of the engine. Such leaks occur happen when bacteria builds up in the antifreeze or coolant solution. This bacterium eventually eats through engine parts

Actually, there are other reasons too

I only knew that this happens when your gasket is bad especially as a result of overheating. I think what you have said somehow still relates to this.
Re: Causes Of Water Mixing With Engine Oil by cardoctor(m): 7:08am On Sep 05, 2016
Hmmm. True but there are also a lot more reasons for that to happen including damaged oil intercoolers embedded within the coolant radiator.
