Dirty area around injectors on brand new 1.6 CRDi

Hello,

My Ceed 1.6 CRDi 136 has only 5800Kms, but the area around the first injector especially looks very dirty. Is this normal ? Can any 1.6 CRDi owners related to this ?

Don't have one as yours ...But from your images, that looks like road dirt accumulating in that area. Caused by "particulates drawn thru the grill and radiator. Wish my rides still looked so clean!

Yeah, road dust is normal. But should that liquid spill be there so early or at all ?

Can not tell from the pic, but it looks like a small oil spill from a top up or during an oil change? As oil fill cap is right there, maybe was left a little loose?

Ya I was thinking its likely a little oil spill from adding.

At Mia...get out your armour all and a soft rag and spend half an hour cleaning up your engine bay, its no big deal.

Ha Ha! @ Sloppy! Being an 09 model the Spectra and is my DAUGHTERS ride, that is the newest ride in my stable.All but 1 are clean but aged looking on metal. I take VERY good care of my fav. 98 Avenger coupe!!,just don't care to disassemble the motor to polish the metal to "show" status! Why do you think I keep saying "when I can pry it away from her" in my long thread on the forum?..LOL

To the OP, clean it up and keep a check on it after doing suggested checks.
