Hi!I saw those "oil thing" on the engine (2.0, Cmax, 96 000KM). Is that worrying?The dealer mechanic said its normal engine vapour.But I saw like a 1cm "drop" of fresh oil- somewhere there.
Anyone saw such thing?Is that serious?Thanks!PS: i'm not sure to buy such 2nd hand vehicle if its a big issue[img]smileys/smiley18.gif[/img]

I received many comments on another forum saying how it's not normal look. Also they said like that it's unlikely to pass any "mot" or inspection.
Some users said to find the source of the leak as it can be simply a bad pouring.Some other user said that the "dealer mechanic" is lying: diesel engine don't vaporise like that.
But at that price they all said to stay away from that "deal".
