Oil hadn't been changed in a very long time. Its a curiosity, that water should have evaporated with the constant use I put it though, so I guessing I had SO MUCH water in there that I hadn't burned through it all yet. Would explain why my oil filler cap likes to spit steam out all the time.

How long did this thing sit before you got your hands on it? I think its been collecting condensation water for a very long time.

Good question. I dunno lol. Now I have a different problem. There is ice kicking around in my transmission and it f*cked up my 4th gear.

Yep. Its not like a cars transmission in that its just a bunch of straight cut gears immersed in oil. Water can get in there and freeze. A cars transmission produces thermal energy. Mine, unfortunately, does not.
