I'm looking to buy a 2007 Subaru Outback (automatic).
For some reason they all seem to have an oily splatter as shown in image. This car is extra oily in this spot (but it has many miles). Anyone know what causes this and what seal is behind this?
The first two images are from one subaru outback, the third is from another of same year. Both are over 150,000 miles. Up is up in the photos and the view is from the firewall looking towards the front of the car from above the axle.
Bonus question: when turning at slow speeds ( near idle) the car shudders like it's a manual car about to stall. It idles fine before turning. Could this be transmission, differential or something else?
