Yes, but think of it like light... Any change in medium results in an impedence of the wave.

Maybe it will just decrease the range a little or a lot.

It's not like you can google "does bluetooth work underwater" and expect to get something helpful in this case lol

My physics fails me lol... I went over wavelengths and such a few semesters ago too lol.

Not sure how much it would actually affect it, since it is running on 2.4GHz (same band as microwaves essentially). I think it would work fairly well.

Bluetooth DOES work underwater. G-Shock, the watch brand by Casio, makes a Bluetooth watch. There's a video that this guy is swimming underwater, and when he got a text, it showed up on the watch.

Oil is more dense, but yes it'll work fine actually.

Not very dense at all actually. It's more viscose, but not very dense. That's why oil floats on top of water.

I wonder how much progress pro2a has made so far. If his build seems to work out without too much problems, I might attempt the same with my soon to be replaced socket 775 motherboard and Pentium D processor.
