there is an oil stain that is shown in the picture, although no check-engine sign is appearing on the dashboard, and I'm really worried about it so can someone tell me what is the problem here?

PCV connection?
Recheck that it is fully connected?
Add Catch Can (at least you will have new hose)?

I wouldn't even classify that as a leak really. More of just some of the oil/vapor that is collecting some dust from driving that is collecting there. Just make sure its all seated and clean it up, nothing really to get worked up over

Kind of looks dirty.
Some basic info to do, wipe the oil stain off, check your oil level and if all good drive and check again to see if it the oil stain reappears.

There is much information to be found and answered on this forum for the care of your Hellcat and it will need care.

Welcome to HC.org!
Congrats on owning a Fasssst Fun Car!:cool:

Linda :)

Find a microfiber towel you can dedicate to that side and the driver side one. Wipe it off...

Imagine what the inside of your supercharger looks like

Check Engine light is not the Wizard of Oz. My point being relying on Check Engine lights has become an epidemic. There are only so many sensors to go around before you actually have to diagnose a possible issue without the Wizard.
And then there’s common sense. To me that’s just soot buildup/possible PCV grommet sweating a bit. Wipe it down and keep an eye on it. Thats certainly not big enough to be low on oil or cause issues yet. If you look all over your engine you’ll prob find more than one connection sweating similar to that.

Another question. I have some dirty little engine spots around hose fittings. I am going to the do it your self car wash,, open the hood and blast away. back in the day we would keep the engine running for water entering the rotary cap to help from saturation. Now days do I need to keep the engine running or not. Cover the air filter of course

Back in the day, I would pop the cap (distributor), spray WD-40, pack rags into the carburetor, and clean. Never had any problems.
