Small oil leak engine front 2.0t

I installed my cxracing intercooler kit last night and today and in the process removed the ram air scoop for the intake. I noticed a dark spot directly behind it just to the right of the power steering pump. I'm almost thinking it could be from the gasket for the timing cover? Is this possible?

I'll take a picture when I get home this afternoon. This is a 2010 2.0t with about 65k. Only mods are isis race exhaust and now the cxracing intercooler kit.

It just seems a little premature for oil leaks of a major component.

Make sure the PCV valve is not restricted or stuck, same for the vent line coming off the right side of the valve cover.

Not to resurrect this old thread, but I'm seeing a similar thing on mine. I'd be surprised if it's timing cover leak so early in its life. I will need to have it looked at by a pro and will let you all know what mine turns out to be.

Is that what it looks like? I just discovered it today and can't tell exactly where it's coming from...

That's the very beginning of the good old timing cover leak. Leave it alone to see if it get worse, takes a LONG time to get gross

57k miles and already? That brings me to my 240 days... Definitely not touching anything unless it starts dripping out significantly.

It won't drip just a sticky dark spot. The machine at the factory never puts enough RTV on the cover on most of the hyundai engines (and sonata oil pans). I rebuilt my motor but it was pretty sticky at 25,000 mi

I've used the red one before and plan on using it again if I have to. I see the one that's there now is either gray or black. I know Honda uses black one. Which one did you use for the reassembly?

Hyundai grey is what I used but that's because I worked at dealer. I'd imagine any RTV would work honestly, there's nothing special about the hyundai grey

As for the difference - the only thing I can think of is the heat tolerance.

Quote:
High-Temp Red (Red) - Universal, but can be used in hi-temp situations. Not as high temp as Ultra Copper. Temperature range -65F to 650F (-54C to 343C) intermittent.

Ultra Black Maximum Oil Resistance (Black)) - Used in areas where oil resistance is a must. This would be oil pans or valve cover gaskets. Temperature range -65F to 500F (-54C to 260C) intermittent.

Ultra Grey Rigid High-Torque (Grey) - Eight times more flexible than cork/composite gaskets; three times more oil resistant than conventional silicones. Temperature range -65F to 500F (-54C to 260C) intermittent. Used where you'd expect to need more flexibility than normal.

UPDATE: I soaked that spot with some brake cleaner about 3 weeks ago and ever since I do not see any oil over at that area, so I take that as a fix LOL

Maybe some oil dripped down during your last oil change. Engine oil has a way of traveling far distances when warm.

I wouldn't worry too much about that. Just clean it off every now and them. Better than having to take off the timing cover to reseal.

ah yeah, I will eventually upgrade to EVO chain and reseal the cover at that time too. BTW, I am only at 61k miles right now.
