Question for the Voyager gurus

Yeah it's me again. Didn't have any luck on the other forum so I figured I'd try here. I noticed an oily residue on the frame crossmember directly in front of my exhaust crossover. I noticed there appears to be a crankcase vent hose above that area. Is anyone else getting any kind of oil residue in this area? I haven't had any oil drips on the floor, just the minor residue on the crossmember area. Just wondering if it was a normal voyager thing or something I should have checked out.

nothing

I see nothing of the sort on my crossmember. I think that might be the oil tank back there. I will look in the manuel and see.

I have a 2011 and did notice a little after the first 500 miles. But I've not seen any since that time. I now have just under 32,000 miles.
