I just bought a 2008 Altima Sedan 2.5S and is under 200 miles. Today, I finally looked under the hood along with the manual book in my hand to learn the whereabouts of all fluid locations.. to my surprise.. from the center of the engine all the way to the right side..(on the air filter, battery, etc.) I see a oil-like all over.. as if it has been spraying out somewhere..I ran my fingers on it and it smeared like oil - I could not smell it.. but it's like clear to brown in color... Does anyone know if this is normal or do I have a leakage somewhere? Is it the oil like I suspect? Yes, I will take it to Nissan and have it checked.. meanwhile.. it's the weekend.. and would like to have some peace of mind until Monday.
In addition, the power steering fluid reservoir, should that have been filled to max when I first bought the vehicle? Because, right now the level is below the Cold Min.
Thanking in advance for your advise or comments.
