ive been doing some reserch and i think its a vacuum switching valve . but if it has failed would this cause it to vent oil onto radiator or could there be another problem .

cheers andrew .

it is clear visible it is an electromagnetic valve that might to act by two ways:

- cut off either system when 12V is fed to solenoid;

- solenoid pushes plunger inside the case leading to stop working of either system ----- just in case the circuit is with oil --- it is presumed this unit acts like an amplifier just to transfer an oil energy to stop device mounted on the engine.

the oil leak might be due to seal ring wear down or simply rubber hose has become an old and lost its flexibility/sealing effect.
