English term or phrase:or escapes past the piston rings and is trapped
Although most of this water escapes as vapour from the exhaust, some condenses on the cylinder walls or escapes past the piston rings and is trapped, at least temporarily, in the crankcase. Other corrosive gases, such as nitrogen oxides, also get past the rings and are condensed or dissolved in the crankcase oil.
