I'll change the oil next week, capture from both locations, then see how quick it returns.

I'll post my results next week....

I think if it was moisture, your bubbles wouldn't pop. If anything they might flow together and coalesce into a drop, ehhh? Also, if you had that much water in your oil as evidenced on your dipstick, you would be getting some emulsified looking mikliness to the oil. I guess I'm thinking here that if you had that much oil at the level of the dipstick, you would see a bunch of water lower in the sump. Just a guess though.
