The other day I was driving along when I smelt burning oil, I had a chance to have a look today and coming from the top of the gear box there is 2 lines one has a hose attached and the other one has nothing. The one that has nothing attached seems to be spraying oil every where. When I first bought the truck I went under for a good look and it looked the same as it does now the only difference is there was no oil leaking from it so it didn't bother me. I can't see any hoses that have come off and are just hanging there.

Does anyone know what these are for and where are they meant to go.

Could be wrong but they maybe the gearbox and transfer case breather pipes - and one is venting and oil is going everywhere - might be overful??!

Thats what I thought they were at first, but it just seems weird that it has only just started leaking in the last week. I have had the truck nearly 2 months now and its only just started doing it if the box is over full you would think it would have been doing it from the start. But then again I was going up a very steep hill when I could smell it.

Ill get back under the old girl tomorrow and have another look and see if I can find where the attached hose is going.
