Well, I was checking my oil and stuff while I was adding washer fluid
this morning, and for the first time, at 33K, I was down to the add mark
on the dipstick, so I went to add a half quart of Mobil 1. When I
unscrewed the oil filler cap, there was a little moisture inside, just
clear water drops, no "scuzz", but the entire inside of the filler cap
was coated with this brick red stuff, almost like it's painted on. It's
not rust, and it doesn't rub off with a paper towel. I've never seen
anything like it before.
Is this the way it normally is, or is this something I should ask about
when I take it to the dealer for it's last visit before the bumper to
bumper warranty expires?
