    Still learning the ins and outs of this d13. I could use your help identifying the following hose. It seems to seep oil every so often. The hose itself appears to be wet and leaks very little. Also, how crucial is it to have it replaced right away? Thanks leaking hose.png

    Injector harness. New harness will fix it until age will cause it to weep again. Unless it's a good amount of oil most just leave it alone.

    Oh you have to replace the entire engine harness. They do not sell just the injector portion..... only the complete harness. You can clean up the area and use a good sealant but it will eventually weep again.

    Sounds like it’s time for some permatex ultra black sealer and maybe a new o ring for the valve cover connection

    this is not that simple there is an epoxy they see to reseal this but it would have to be all removed from valve cover really clean and than epoxy and let dry before installing back new o ring and some silicone should take care of the problem .
