    ETEC oil leaking

    Any idea why my 2011 etec is leaking oil/gas from the overflow by the left front shock? When I removed the gas cap there was some trapped pressure there likley from the warmer weather.. is it possible this could cause the overflow? Find it strange there is oil in the mixture.

    I am looking at a used 2006 Dodge 2500 5.9L with 138000kms from an auction.
