2002 156 JTS

Dark patch on engine cover

Hi there,
recently purchased a 2002 156 JTS, and a week afterwards, I went to check the oil and saw this odd patch on the enginer cover. Is it an internal problem, and if so, how serious would it be. I'm secretly hoping that he just spilt oil on the cover one time, but it looks far too finely shaped to be that.

Looks like someone's spilt *something* and wiped it off...

You could try taking it off to see if there is anything underneath - but I think Iain is most probably correct.
