Hey everyone! I am a total newbie in car mechanics. Next week, I have an appointment at the garage for an oil leak on my 2009 Toyota Corolla Xrs. Leak had already been ‘fixed’ by another garage few months ago.
I read a lot about the symptoms of a blown head gasket. I am pretty sure this is not it. There no bubble in my radiator conducts, no milky substance mixed with the oil, no smoke or anything like that. No performance issues that I noticed either.
So today I was obsessively thinking about this and I decided to try to figure out from where it was coming. I might have figured out from where, but I have no idea what is this piece. I read about the PCV Valve, but I am not able to figure out if this is it on my corolla.
Here are some pictures. The leak seems to be coming from that kind of ‘bot’ in the middle. This is where the oil is more fresh. Any clue on what it could be? Thanks! The image is showing the front of the engine, right side.
Edit: I can actually post a single picture as I am a new user.
