Last week I changed the oil , oil filter, sump plug and the washer around the sump plug. A couple of nights ago I left the car in a car park for around 20 minutes and came back to find a puddle full of oil which was approximately 1 foot in diameter. The oil level had definately dropped both looking at the dipstick and the digital gague on the dash.

I replaced the oil and took the car home. I left the car overnight with something to catch any oil but the car hadn't leaked again at all. I tightened the sump plug which did have a bit of oil around it but while I was under the car I noticed another leak (See attached photo)

I was wondering what this pipe led to, and found this post. Is this the afforementioned oil feed pipe?

If so how easy is it to fix?

Many thanks for your time and any help you can offer.
