What is this pipe? Small oil stain around it.

Recommended Posts

That pipe is near the oil filter. It could be spilt oil from when they changed the filter. If not that, it could be your oil filter housing gasket needs replacing. Wipe it clean and keep and eye. If you're not losing oil, it's just splashed/spilt oil from when the filter was last changed.

 

If not the above, you probably just need a seal replacing. The rubber goes hard with the heat and cracks over time.

Thanks. Will clean it up tomorrow.

 

But out of interest, what is that pipe? Strange connector on it, with a blue clip. The connector seems to move laterally a little (2-3mm) if you pull or push on it.
