Hi all!

Can anyone tell me what the following is????

The large black rubber pipe that goes to the inlet of the turbo has a 1" pipe that joins it approximately 6 inches back from the turbo inlet, followed upwards this 1" pipe then connects to a round-ish black plastic thing on top of the engine (cam cover), I am guessing it is a breather????? can anyone fill me in???

This is a straight six!
Cheers
Paul.

any ideas why it may be dropping small amounts of oil into the large turbo connecting pipe??? engine oil overfilled maybe (says it is perfect!) ?

They all do that sir. Don't worry to much about it.

You may want to replace the oil separator on top of the engine. It may help a little.
