    Anyone tell me what the silver canister like thing is next to the oil filler cap on this pic?

    Just Ive got a bit of a coolant leak coming from directly underneath it and was just wondering what it is.

    Cheers. :thumb:

    If you're referring to the silver cylinder cap with tubes coming out of it (lower left of the pic) then its the part having to do with the refrigeration for your AC. I think. Get confirmation, but I'm almost positive that's what it is.

    Is that not your fuel filter?

    Smell what comes out, does it smell like diesel?

    After googling it does look like a fuel filter. I dont think the leak is coming from there, it seams its from something just underneath. Just hoping its not the head.

    Cheers for the help peeps.
