I have a 1991 Chevy Silverado with a 4.3l Vortec V6. Approx 12427 miles.
Today I found out that the engine has been leaking water into the engineoil for some time. Dont know exactly how long but for at least 6 months. During this 6 months I would guess that about 0.22 gallons of water has leaked into the engine. I have changed the oil once during these months and have used the car pretty much daily.
Im about to fix the leak, but Im wondering about what damage the engine might have sustained? The bearings for instance. Any suggestions or experience how to proceed?
The engine runs fine with no noise except a sound from the distributor.
My oilgauge sometimes get stuck in max or vobbles a bit. Probably due to the water.
have the same problem?
