    oil in the air intake

    hello i took my airbox of my astra 1.8 sri mk4 today and the air intake from the inlet manifold to the airbox i took it off the airbox and noticed a little bit of oil well i think it was oil just on the lip of the air intake i had a good look inside the pipe couldnt see any more oil any where elselooked on the air box and where the pipe comes out of the airbox there was a little bit on the lip of the pipe on there as well but couldnt see any inside the airbox or in the air filter, when i bought the car from a trader they changed the timing belt for me and serviced it if that helps.

    I have wiped off all the oil and gonna check it again in a few days.

    any ideas to what it might be?

    thanks

    tony

    does any one have any other thoughts to what it might be? i havent checked it again since i cleaned it up im gonna have a look next weekend. and if its there again and if its not meant to be i will ring the trader up who i got it from because it has got 2 months warranty left.

    So if any one knows what it might be please let me know

    Thanks
