So I'm noticing some grime build up around the engine block as per the photos below. I've had the 2012 Rav4 2.4L since 53,000KM and now at 93,500KM. I don't seem to be losing oil or coolant at a noticeable rate which makes it hard to tell. Current oil is Mobil 1 0W-20. Anyone else have this or might know the root cause?

The gasket area appears normal to me. Appears that either someone has spilled some oil on top of the valve cover or something is leaking slightly there, but the head gasket area doesn't appear to indicate a problem there.
