and you wish to replace the hose, or oil filter housing?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I wanted to replace both hoses that lead from the oil filter housing to the engine. The inlet hose is the one that's leaking. From what I can see, the leakage is at the connection between the hose and the engine. Once the engine is turned on, a significant amount of oil begins to seep from that location.
