hmm

Are you sure that's where it's leaking? I'd be more apt to guess that it's from your gauge sender which is right in that area and is showing up on that line. That line you're pointing to doesn't carry oil AFAIK.

If you've got oil in that line you've got more problems than you think!

If it's the original plastic/nylon line, they are known to get holes in them. Replaced mine with a copper line when oil started spraying all over the inside of my engine compartment. Problem went away immediately.

Not familiar with the 4cyl, but if it's a steel line, chances are that's gasoline. Hopefully someone with a 4cyl will have some info...

Either way, that steel line isn't too expensive to come by, and with a bender you can get for a deposit at the parts store, you can replace it yourself if you're handy.

I have the a similar issue. Mine sprays out gas every once in a while and it'll come through one of the holes in the tub and hit my boots.
