Oil line weeping

Postby donterob » Tue Aug 07, 2012 9:07 am

Hi guy's need some advice! On my 07 SD I have a very slight weep on the oil line which is the one located at the rear of the Oil tank behind the oil cap. Its a rubber hose that goes down to and connects into the oil pipe! As i said there is a slight weep at both ends of the rubber line! Question is! Is it a pressurised line? (don't think it is but thought i should be sure!). I can either replace the line with better quality stuff or put better clamps on! Just need to know if its a pressurised line? Thanks guys!

Think he's referring to the other side.......................

Have a look on the parts fiche here to identify which pipe you mean 'cos it could be one of a number of oil pipes and/or vent pipes.

Hmmm.... My bad, blindness sets in.... :roll:

Start all over....

The original clamps on the oil and cooling hoses are crap, replace and if you find a damaged hose any of this good quality oil hoses should do.
Most car places have them as they are used on oil coolers.
