I have a small leak, noticeable on passenger side of engine, although I recognize the oil may have travelled. Its tiny ...for now, maybe a teaspoon after being parked for 2 weeks. Any ideas where it might be coming from ?
Before I found out that these were a warranty repair, I fashioned what I considered a temporary fix but as long as it held I would have put off replacing the line. You're right that they don't look like anything special to me either. So I used a short section of soft pliable rubber that I wrapped around the the broken (or could just be cracked partially) tube to hold it together and used very closely spaced tie-wraps to securely seal the soft rubber patch. Since it's just a crankcase oil vent line there is very little pressure and I'm sure my fix would have lasted quite a while.
