    Oil in hull ?

    Any one else getting oil in the back of hull ? I have cleaned it up 2 times still there. Looks like engine has a leak on right side.

    If you think it has a leak and you can't readily diagnose where it is coming from...well...take it to the dealer if it is an '08.

    I think the timing chain tensioner is over there. Not much else in that area.
