Ummm.....nobody was hard on it. This is a typical problem when the UIM fails at the EGR stovepipe, and allows water to mix with the oil.

Luck to you Gameover. Make it fun.

UIM- Upper Intake Manifold (the balck plastic piece on top of engine with the throttle body hanging on it)
EGR Stove Pipe- Exhaust Gas Recirculation, The outlet of the EGR valve dumps into the upper intake through this stove pipe. A certain quantity of exhaust gas is returned to the engine intake through the EGR sytem.

Game..I did one the other week with Highlander. Check the EGR stovepipe..make sure it'* solidly in the LIM. Shouldn't take that long. These puppies nearly jump out of the car on their own.
