Water in oil
I have a 97 chevy suburban and I'm getting water in
my oil. I was told it's the intake manifold gasket by
many people and one said its the heads. I have no
check engine light on and have not over heated
that's why they say its the manifold could that be
Seals and gaskets are what keep liquids separated between your engine and cooling system. When seals wear out or parts crack, you'll start finding condensation or other foreign liquids in your oil or coolant. Parts wear out over time, so it's not at all surprising that this is occurring in your 1997 Chevrolet Suburban. They would be correct, as it sounds like there's a non-watertight seal which is allowing water to find its way in to your oil. In addition, just because an engine light isn't on doesn't mean everything is alright, and vice-versa. An engine light can come on for the most simple of reasons, even those which don't affect day to day driving, while it may not come on at all for more serious issues. If you're a bit of a DIY guy, have some fun diagnosing the issue and try to find a possible solution. Otherwise, you can always take it to some knowledgeable friends or acquaintances since it sounds like you might know a few. Best of luck!
Have it read for codes, even if the check engine light is NOT on the computer will have stored information and codes. Discount auto stores will read codes for no fee. write them down.
