What line is this?

Anyone know what this hose is? I found it wet the other day while changing oil. It's seeping yellowish fluid, almost the color of brand new oil.

Oil cooler return? What is the silver thing it is attached to? Wider shot needed.

The hose looks to have slid back a 1/4 of an inch.

Usually that crimp is the hose stop. Looks like its on all the way to me. A regular hose clamp tightened really well might solve it. Unless the leak is in the hose itself.

finally got a chance to get a wider shot of this (pass side). Still seeps. I was actually able to squeeze the tabs with my fingers and slid the hose flush with the stopper. Im also thinking this is an oil cooler return. Any other ideas?

If you have the slack, cut the hose 1" and use a regular hose clamp. I'm not familiar with the underhood of that Jeep, but it sorta looks like a P\S return line

If I take the hose off to cut it, don't I need to bleed the system? I heard that bleeding it on the hemi is more involved. Any truth to that?

You have to double check just what hose that is. Most power steering systems are 'self bleeding' meaning several turns stop-to-stop works the air from the system. Maybe someone with more HEMI experience will chime in.
