So i was helping my friend with his swap and when we took the cracked oil pan on the srt4 engine from the wrecked car this is what we found. But have no idea what it may be as it is different color and dont see what that would have came from and it is too hard to be oil gunk.. what could this be ? how bad is it?

Holy Krack!

Welcome back!
:lol:

Probably just excess sealant from somewhere that made it's way to the pan.

I had to check the post date to see if an ancient thread got bumped.

@v793jt0 .....Occasional Demons is probably right i would put her back together, put fresh oil in.. then after 500 miles or so id drain the oil and check the pan again. I cant tell from the pic but was there any metallic flakes in the oil?

Someone had suggested it could be the cranck sensor but that is intact
