So I went to do an oil change and replace the spark plugs on the (2000) Tundra today, and when I popped the hood I found this oil leak. It looks like it's coming from these hoses, which appear to be some sort of breather possibly. But I wondered why now they would do this (it's not like I was running anything hot). Anybody know or seen these? They are on the driver's side of the engine bay, just behind the dipstick. Farnham? Christo?

well, I found this thread, and it appears they are breathers and I probably overfilled my t-case and for some reason today it decided to go puking...

It seems that the Tundras are setup different than the 100 series Cruisers, and since I think I have the only Tundra in the club, move along, nothing to see here...

I was going to say breather.. that 1st pic on the right you can see the standard crimp top on the top of the breather tube.

Our 4th gen 4Runner had breathers like that in the engine bay for the drivetrain.
