    So I was about to start washing my truck, and was spraying down my engine bay when I noticed there is no cap on my oil fill neck. I know that I surely got some water in there, not alot, but a fair amount. So what do you think? Full oil change? Anything else?

    Click my Sig Pic for my build thread. Too many to list here.
    Id drain the oil completely and then before putting the plug in, dump another quart in and let it drain out to hopefully get most of the water out. That and don't run it at all till that happens.

    #1 Where did the damn cap go? ...

    #2 I would do the same as above, drain it maybe pour alittle through and put new in. A tiny bit of water will not hurt, you get condinsation normally that burns off. After new oil in, I would run it, and just check it to make sure no water left.

    I think I must've pulled a dumbass last time I changed the oil and forgot to put it back on. Thanks for the help guys! I'm just glad it won't need to be towed lol

    Drain,refil,run engine for a while-not just around the block-Let it heat up to be sure all the moisture is GONE. If oil turns MILKY WHITE(off color) CHANGE AGAIN.
    A SMALL amount of water will just burn off. Just a few drops will not hurt--but a half a cup (4 oz) may cause problems.
    AND DON"T FORGET to put the DAMN CAP ON!!!!
