Hi guys! I got my first WRX about a month ago (I know, i know, where are the pictures?! Very soon!) and I came across something under the engine that I wasn't quite sure of.
There's a black plastic cover across the front of the engine, parallel to the engine radiator (I believe to protect the pulleys) that I'm referring to. More specifically, the region on the driver's side, between the yellow engine fuel cap and the coolant reservoir. And, there is small amount of oil leaking under this plastic. I cleaned it off after I took the pictures and it looks like the plastic cover is a two-piece, and whenever I put pressure using my hands to try and seal it better, there is small amount of oil seeping through the two pieces.
Should I be worried about this? Before I got the car, the dealership replaced the timing belts and did an oil change. Could there be oil trapped in the black plastic cover? Thanks ClubWRX community!
