    Default oil filter overflow

    just a quick question for anyone with knowledge on the cdti 150 engine
    i had my car serviced today every thing went well but they noticed on the oil filter housing there is a pipe which looks to be an overflow just wondering if that should be capped off or not

    cheers

    It for draining the oil filter, the dirty's job on the planet! lol it's ment to let the oil come out when you unscrew the filter housing, but lets it go everywhere, floor, arms, down the front of your work shirt, hair, on the exhaust, ETC it's competely up to you, they dont tend to have covers on them from the amount ive seen.
