IS this normal >>1st time undertray off-- oily gunge all over intercooler pipe.
My first post and 1st oil change job on my 156 jtd 8valve 05 model. ( previous owner used dealer for servicing)
In spite of it being a nuisance having to remove an undertray before work commenced I was pleased to see how clean the engine bay was.
Apart that is from the intercooler pipe (see pics oops cant post will try later se my other thread). Is this normal? My guess is that as the pipe transports cooler (possibly lower than ambient) air its prone to condensation of any oil vapour that happens to be about. But if so where does ther oil come from? Hope you experiences types can help. If normal I'll just clean it off.Doesn't look like there are any splits here or a0nywhere else and car has been running perfectly in the 6500 miles since I bought it. (just so folks can see that you CAN get lucky with an alfa!!)
