Rav4? Are those aftermarket tail lights?
Looks like a Subaru

Indeed is a Forester. I have a real love/hate relationship with it so far.

Forester never came with flat 6, just an NA 2.5 F4 or a turbo F4. This one is NA and so down on power with only 170hp....plus a shitty CVT. It handles great on the roads and even keeps up off road with my buddy in his silverado 4x4 with MT tires. But any time I do moderate off roading, the damn this needs an alignment. But speaking of flat engines, I do have another Subaru with a 3.3L Flat 6

I believe the Forester XT does, the NA one "shifts" as you drive. I have no clue why, it's pointless and I called out the salesmen at the dealer when he was telling us about it. Other than all that though, it's a good car.

Could this be early signs of failing OFHG? N55 engine. Last oil change 4 months ago with 700 miles. The car is driven maybe once per week to bring up to operating temperature. There are no noticeable oil leaks on or around the oil filter housing. The coolant in the reservoir is blue and looks healthy - not milk chocolate. What's going on here?

How long is that once a week drive? Does it go away after a healthy Italian tune up?

Maybe 30 miles or so. Half of that time the car is coming up to operating temperature, then the other 15 miles I push the car a little harder to 4-5k rpm on a few take offs from a stop but nothing crazy. I don't open the oil cap often enough to monitor this - just happened to be in there today and noticed the build up.

Id guess it's from condensation, but I'm no expert.

Thank you for the timely replies. Driving the car more often is the best fix one could ever ask for

not necessarily more often, but make sure to try to get the engine to full(or almost) operating temp whenever you drive it to burn off any shit in the engine/oil

Given your location in the Midwest, this is probably the emulsion of oil and condensed water that occurs in cold temperatures in the winter, sometimes affectionately referred to as "peanut butter." Nothing to be too concerned about if just under the oil cap.

It was someone elses LOL. Just took a pic while walking. I usually let my dog stay in the back. The sensatec is DURABLE ASFK. But my dog scratched up that plastic panel under the AC vents in the rear.
