Hi All,

In front of the oil filter plate, there's a vertical 'port' that has a dark liquid weeping from it. It has built up
a light sludge from the 'port' down to the oil filter plate after 1500mi. What is this 'port'?
Location is also below and in front of the water pump.

Thanks for any further Qs and possible solutions to stop this mess.

Found out this isn't 'normal'. Will have it looked at.

Thanks,
Jer

Just like on the LT that is a vent for the joint between the water pump and oil pump (they share a common shaft) and is a sign the seal is leaking

Have fun,
