2012 leaky seal?

I've recently noticed this leak coming from my valve cover gasket . I bought the car new 1 year ago, and this is how much oil has accumulated since. It has 11800mi. Anything to worry about?

While you'd like it to be a bit better, that is normal seep to me and I certainly wouldn't be risking further issues by taking car back in to let them do something worse. I see far more dirt than oil there, the oil itself should be little enough to not notice it missing on dipstick.

My view only though. It is that the dealerships now are full of those that unfix your car while fixing things.

Hi trahker,

If you're concerned, swing by your dealership so they can take a look. Additionally, you can always contact Ford directly at 1-800-565-3673; I know they'll be happy to help. :)
