After getting serviced at a dealer for fuel leak problem about a month ago, I haven't really looked in the engine compartment.
I hit 500miles today and while checking the engine oil level I saw some white residue where roof opening and rubber intercooler pipe piece meets. :shrug:
So I tooke a closer look to find that rubber piece goes in between the intercooler and the roof scoop was loose... :mad:
No light came on so I did'nt know until after driving it for 300miles or so.
Would this cause any problem to the engine, SC or car hereafter?
I'm gonna have a nice talk with the service manager on Monday about this matter... sigh...

that coupler between the intercooler and roof will get loose from time to time and will not cause a CEL, but you have to check up on it every now and then to make sure its tight. Also, maybe the white residue is dried wax?
