Hi All,

I'm hoping for a bit of advice. I have an oil leak that appears to be coming from either this hex plug, (see pic), or the oil filter. Just wondering what the hex plug is? Is it an oil related item?

Thanks in advance.

That hex plug is not an oil related item and I am going to suggest the oil is coming from the front of the engine and blowing back to that location.

If you clean up the oil and then monitor the leak you might get a better idea of where it is leaking from.

I think that hex is for draining coolant on that side of the block, there's another on the other side. Hopefully oil isn't coming from there!
