The 2.6 L engine is a Mitsubishi product. The picture looks like fluid got past the head gasket and ran down the cylinder wall after the engine was off. If I recall correctly this is a cast iron block with an aluminum cylinder head. The head may have warped and may need to be surface planed. The cylinder wall might benefit from some fine honing. Make sure to keep any particles out of the rings and oil system. Consult with the folks planing the head and have the block deck checked for flatness.
