petrol leakage engine

Recommended Posts

Hello folks.

I just made my 6 month visual check of my timing belt, and it looks very good. But I noticed some petrol leakage..

Looks like perhaps the washer on that big petrol hose needs replacing? what do you guys think? :)

 

Best regards

I'm pretty new to the 1G-FE but I don't think that's a petrol hose lol. I think it's an oil feed line for the cam gears maybe?

Hmm, im nut 100% certain myself but the nut/hose setup looks identical to other petrol mountings I have seen on other cars. 

Anyone know for sure what this pipe is? :whistling:

sounds logical based on its location. I will bring a photo to my dealer tomorrow and ask them to find out. Ill update with the answer. 

Thanks so far ax53!

no problem. Upon further investigation i think it feeds the oil for the VVTi system. So in that case it doesn't serve a lubrication purpose which is a good thing. Also the fitting type is called a "banjo fitting". Good luck
