longston,

There is an "oil accumulator" in the air cleaner, but the air cleaner is not supposed to accumulate oil. The five cylinders will accumulate more oil in the air cleaner as blowby increases. A really tired engine will soak an air filter element very quickly and will also put a puddle on the garage floor every time the engine is shut down. I have been told that these will puddle on the floor when new, but I never bought one of those cars new.

If it is a small amount, I would suggest maintaining the engine and enjoy.

BTW, This has nothing to do with the Trap Oxidizer.

Good luck,
Change oil hot and change oil often,
