As the title says, i have recently noticed small drops of water at the top of the oil filler tube. There does not seem to be any water or milky oil on the dipstick though, and the coolant water does not bubble with the engine on (like i would have expected it to do if it were a head gasket prob).
Does anyone have any ideas as to what might be causing this?
Could it just be condensation?

Wait, if that is on the turbo wagon, it very well may be a critical condition and you'd better sign over the titlew to me immediately. :grin: (Just condensation)

Sooooo... Which of you would make the drive to hand the car over?

Or do you plan on meeting half way? Then the car would REALLY have a "condensation problem"!!! :lol:
