    Looks like it seeped thru the bolted areas. I would leave it as is and take it to the dealership first chance you get just to be safe. Hoping nothing leaked or seal broken

    Certainly appears to be "seepage", maybe get the torque spec for the screws/bolts, you might get lucky
    Good Luck

    Looks like seepage...did you see if the tork screws were loose? May just need to be retorqued.

    I'm really interested in seeing how much blow by these cars have by installing aftermarket catch cans. The 6.1s have a lot... The 300 has filled 3/4s of the BT catch can in 5k miles. I change the Jeep at 4k miles and it is about 1/4 of catch can. This has been the case with the 300 since I put the catch can on at 30k miles...has 111k now. The Jeep has 32k miles.

    I've had an issue with the intake manifold gasket on the 300 and have torn off the top half of the motor. Surprised how much oil was in the intake plenum with a catch can.

    No other oil anywhere else on the motor or blower?

    Mope. That's the only oil I saw anywhere. Might explain the strange smell from the other day...
