this is a sign of a major problem you either have a cracked head or block or a blown head gasket. there is a product called liquid glass you can use to fix this but bear in mind this is a tempoary fix at best.

However, check the water pump blades to see if they may have cut a circular hole leading water into your engine, depending on the design of the assembly. It may not be noticeable at first unless you thoroughly inspect areas wherever possible. A crack in the engine block is rare by the way.

No it will not cause coalescence. Water separates from oil they do not mix or combine

Depending on the force of an explosion, it could kill some of the marine life in the water very close to it. An explosion on a rig also scatters some forms of hazardous debris into the water which pollutes it. Also, an oil rig explosion could also cause a flow of oil or well fluid from a well or pipeline into the water that can cause severe pollution.

A hypothesis about oil and water could have to do with a mixture's properties. For example, you could hypothesize that when water is added to oil, the two substances will remain separate.

Because of the sea creatures that live in the river(they could die), and it can make the water toxic

It could be for two reasons, First, with the time, the chemicals in water paint ares drying out, and the paint gets harder, loses its form and crack. It could also be because some water paint was painted over oil paint. You can paint oil on water but not water on oil, cause it doesn't "stick" to the oil one. Also certain wall surfaces need to be paint with oil paint.

Machines could be used to pollute the air andd water, andthey can also cause oil in the water.

That means that you need to change the oil filter. Or, it could mean that the combustion of the oil is out of tune, and you need to have a qualified oil burner technician look at it.

No, if you have oil in your oil pan, you have other problems. It has nothing to do with your water pump going out or being bad.

A soap or emulsifier will cause oil and water to mix, although not perfectly.

User Avatar

a head gasket could very easily cause that. The cooling and oil channells would leak into your cylinder and be either burned or leak out of the exhaust. Check for water in your oil....turns white, and oil in your coolant.

if a ship or anything is damaged that has oil in it that could cause a oil spill.

It can cause your oil cap to blow right off, foam around the oil cap is more likely to be water or coolant. Get it checked right away because it can damage your engine. It's usually a sign of a bad head gasket, it lets water into the oil and oil into the water. Check your radiator to see if there is oil in the water and if the water is low.

Oil releases into water are bad because of the organisms that live in the water. For example the organisms may swallow the oil and it could poison the animal and it could die .

A cause for high oil pressure could be related to the type of oil that is being used in the vehicle. Thicker based oils such as 10w40 and higher could cause high oil pressure.

Your really should never put more oil then needed into anything no extra oil will not cause water to get in you obviously have a bad seal somewhere below the water line

User Avatar

For the animals on land they could drink the water and the chemicals in the oil get into them and kill them. For the animals in the ocean they could breathe in the water then it get into the body and kills them.

People cause water pollution from throwing garbage and other things into the water. Also, oil and other chemicals cause pollution.

There is nothing to worry about with water in the exhaust. However water in your oil could suggest leaky gaskets. Depends where in the oil system or engine it is.

A cracked engine block can cause different symptoms depending on where the crack is. The coolant could leak into the water or a cylinder. The crack could cause low compression in a cylinder. The crack could also leak coolant into the oil.
