So my PT Cruiser is dripping a bit of oil. It looks like it's coming from the hose next to the oil filter (the lower one). Can someone tell me what the part number is? I might pick one up in the States next week if it's not expensive.

Having the only left hand drive PT Cruiser in New Zealand is sort of cool, but I don't think I'd recommend it to anyone.

That's kind of like,we think it would be cKool to have the right hand drive here. Well I think so any way. Try CREWZEN or randyincctx for the part number.

Not sure if you are talking about the hoses going to the factory oil cooler. But those have coolant. They are located very close to the oil filter. Could you take a picture of it?

This in VNT's picture from an old thread. I'm guessing the oil must just be accumulating around this hose and is actually coming from somewhere above it. Could be the filter. I am reluctant to change the oil and filter without having it looked at first, because I spend $50 (US) just on the oil/filter...and that's not even full synthetic . I would hate for the shop to end up immediately draining it.

Turned out to be the oil filter. I felt stupid bringing it in, and the mechanic then wanted to change the oil. As that would easily run $130, I declined the offer.

Oil filter not screwed in tightly? $130 for an oil change and they can't tighten filter?
Get yourself some ramps, a 13mm wrench, a strap wrench for the filter, and change the oil yourself.

I change my own oil. It went about 4000 miles without leaking, so I'm going to blame the filter and not the installer.
