    Default Oil on under tray

    Hi all was looking at the jacking points and noticed oil on the undertray on the nearside of the car dosn't look like it's been dripping but it is covered with oil, I have placed 4 a4 sheets of paper stuck together underneath this patch of oil on undertray to see if anything is dripping, i'm thinking it has been garage when doing service missing filling hole and it has leaked down onto undertray (i hope) as there is oil residue to the right of the filler hole.

    What colour is the oil?

    Does it look fresh like honey or does it look like blacker (leaking) oil?

    I had this effect with a Passat once when the garage must have spilt oil during a service. The car was dripping oil for weeks while I thought it best to let it run off naturally, eventually it caused so much mess I had to remove the tray and it was then I got about another litre plus of spent engine oil!

    Clean it off if you can get enough access, that way it's easier to tell if it returns.
