[Engine] Another oil leak thread
#1
Looks like I have an oil leak at the back NS of the engine. There's a pipe between the rocker cover and the air intake which is fairly loose (I can pull it off easily by hand) and seems to be the source. What is this pipe? And should it have jubilee clips on it?

There seems to be a bit of oil at the other (OS) end too. Possibly rocker cover gasket?

Photos attached. Cheers

Picture one is a breather hose and yes there should be a clip there.

Picture three could be an ill fitting filler cap / residue of oil filling but looks like it isn't much of a problem if not dripping I'd leave italone for now.

Cool, thanks, hopefully replacing the clip should sort it. I presume there's supposed to be one on the other end too (picture 2)?

I guess I'll just give it all a good clean and keep an eye on it.

Had a similar problem & suspected that gasket, turned out to be loose bolts holding the plastic cam housing.
