    Hi Andreas,

    If you're referring to one of the hoses that goes into the silver box-like component just below the coolant drain plug on page 1-4, that would be an engine oil cooler hose. Same with the hose in illustration 12.8 on page 2A-20 (the one indicated by the right arrow).

    Hello Andreas,

    Engine oil only. Hopefully, you're due for an oil change...

    Hello Andreas,

    There's no reason that you cannot drain the oil and reuse it if your containers and methods are abolutely clean... One question, are you leaking engine oil from the hose that needs replacing?
