    Oil gundge around timing cover

    Is this fairly normal? I am concerned about it but dont think I should be, just not noticed it on any other cars. Its not fresh oil, just oil gundgy stuff around where the cover meets the block and there is a metal plate bolted above the turbo which seems to have this gundge on it too, I cant take pics as my cable is at work

    Probably seeping from the valve cover gasket down onto the heatshield

    most rubber gaskets fail after some time i would pick up a new one but make sure you get the four rings as well for the spark plug holes
