Can Anyone Tell Me What This Is On My Rb25det

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone :) . I'm so new to all of this. sorry for the noob post but I've recently bought an R34 and I have no idea what this thing is:

It sits next to the air intake pipe. Seems like theres oil inside of it when I open it up. Could this be the oil that cools down the turbo? :s

Im curious to know because I got my oil changed at a service station but do I need to change this aswell?

If you were to look at where the hoses go you would have noticed they go to the power steering pump.

Which confirms jordy is correct.

Just let your mechanic service the car. Leave the bonnet shut ;)

OP likely wouldn't know what the ps pump looks like either....

^^ I second this ^^ at least until you have someone who can go over everything and help you in person. Spend a lot of time just browsing and searching this forum and you will gradually learn what you need..

you cnts are harsh critics, I swears :P...give me a clearly worded and diagrammed noob post over some of the other muppets that can't evun spel write wot, innit..

OP, power steering fluid needs to be changed as well just not that often, maybe 40,000k's? Worth doing if you've just got the car and aren't guaranteed of it's history; doesn't cost much for p/s fluid and not like you've got to do it again for a while.
