quote:Did not sit at all - was in a import holding yard for a bit and then driven to the dealer for me to pick up. I am concerned, however the car is under warrant for 3 years. I do some short drives, however mixed with long ones. Have never noticed with any other car I have had. Oil was changed after 1200mi and antifreeze lever is OK. I usually do not look inside the oil cap - have no idea why I did this time. Any other ideas??

Originally posted by Nosmo King: While this could certainly happen if oil and water were mixed, I doubt that this is the problem. You are experiencing condensation forming on the relatively cold top of the motor. It happens allot on recent VW's where they have a cast aluminum valve cover with the oil cap on top of a 3 inch riser. This is an ideal place to get condensation and will be more prevalent on short journeys.
