    Oil Leak

    Hi igor . ive taken anothe picture to try to make it more cleear . the oil is leaking from the round plastic part at the end opposite the plug . 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 .
