    Question Simple 1.9CDTi Oil Leak Question from Mechanical Muppet

    Chaps,

    What is this pipe used for ? Is it just an oil drain for when you remove the filter ?

    My 04 Vectra has started dumping huge amounts of oil on the path, over night - see pics - wheelie bin in corner for size reference!

    Dipstick shows oil level is at max - even though there is no shortage on the path. Car was serviced perhaps 10 months ago.

    It's definitely dripping from that pipe, also see engine cover plate, you can see how wet it is at the back below that pipe.

    Is it just a badly fitting filter ? Seems odd it would occur after 10 months? Wondering if it was overfilled with oil at service which maybe hasn't helped (pressure), seeing as there's about a litre on the drive and still loads in the car.







    So I'm assuming a filter change will fix this, unless someone knows other wise ?

    Thanks all !

    Well found - thanks. Didn't realise it was the same until I got further down the thread.

    Wonder if I've got the right filter - came from AutoVaux....

    Thanks.
