Hello 4g owners,

I have weird water or oil looking marks appearing on the top of my engine and I’m not sure what it’s from or where it’s coming from. I’m sure it is a leak of some sort. Any Suggestions on what I should do or what needs replaced? Any and all suggestions will help.
Thanks

The silvery spots are the enamel peeling away.

But I can see what looks like a oil line on the enamel. I suspect valve cover gasket is weeping. Pretty easy fix with minor google research.

It looks like it could be the oil cap that has a leak, either in addition to, or as the cause, even.

Clean the oil off, and if it comes back, you'll know it's not from an old spill
Good call. Even cheaper and easier to fix. or at least eliminate.
