Mosture in my crank case Please Help.!!!!!

G/F just got back from having her oil changed.
Mechanic told her that there's moisture leaking into
the oil and she should have it checked by the dealer
because it can seize the engine. Car is running like
a top. 53k on the engine and the oil is changed every
3k religiously. Any comments or suggestions would help.
I don't want to look like an idiot at the dealer. 2.0 liter engine
Thks, Dave

In addition to what Dergolf said, It is winter time and as the engine cools, when she parks it, condensation will form on the inside of the valve covers, etc. Kinda looks like dirty mayonaise when mixed with the oil. If my memory serves it's been a fairly wet winter as well. Anyway if it's not coolant, there's your answer. Oh and drive it hard....surest way to keep it clean inside
