Hi all, I recently changed oil on my 2004 Honda Civic DX and I noticed the oil pan was dirtier than the last time I changed oil. I assumed it was the oil pan gasket. But I jacked it up and took a closer look today, and it looks like the leak is coming from above the oil pan gasket. There is a black plastic part attached to the back side of the engine (to the left of the oil filter) that has a hose coming out of it, and it looks like that might be where the leak is coming from. I did have to add some coolant this winter, so I’m wondering if it is coolant leak? I need help identifying what this black plastic piece is. I’m still pretty new to DIY auto repair, so I don’t know what this piece is. Thank you for the help!
