HOW DO YOU TELL WATER IN YOUR OIL ?? HAD CAR PART (PCV VALVE) OFF FOR A MONTH

1999 Pontiac Grand Am • 250,000 miles

I took off the pvc valve and tubing to my 99 pontiac grand am v6 for a month. My friend says I should change my oil because there could be water in my oil? Is this true?How can I tell that there is water in my oil? And what should I do? Finally have new valve and tubing.

Why did you remove the pcv and did you plug the port?

Because the valve was bad and the elbow had a crack in it and no I didnt plug the port

Running that long with a massive vacuum leak may have brought moisture into the system. I would repair this asap before you damage the motor further.

Ok do I drop the oil or change the oil and fliter or is that the same thing.
