I just bought a used subaru 2.5. I noticed theres two hose that come out of a plate right under the fuel rails the plate says outback. One of the hose has a milky kinda white substance slowly draining out of it and it smells like shit. Can someone tell me what these hoses are and what this substance is??
Thanks
Nick

Nick, if you haven't been able to figure it out by looking at the manuals, is it possible to attach a picture of the hoses in question so we can have a "look"?

Good suggestion Jay. My interest is up now wondering what smells like what ever coming out of his engine

Nevermind i contacted outback, its a breather hose with emusified oil in it said its very common. They said i should worry if its in the oil pan or filter..

How about through the rest of the engine... Like in the oil passages!

Im not sure. They told me that them hoses connect to a breather and if not ran long or hot enough will get that milky white build up in the hose itself. No big deal and dont worry unless my oil draining out of the pan looks milky like that which would me a blown head or warped head..

Oh. I see what they are saying. Keep us posted on your findings when you drain the pan.
