Please help identify this rubber hose.
Oil leak seemed to damage a short rubber hose under my 1994 c220. Please take a look at the attached image and tell me its part name or even better its part number. Why does it connect the starter to some aluminum tube leading to the top?
The black part on the upper left side of the "mystery" rubber hose is the starter. The white part on its right side is the engine oil pan.
Thank you very much in advance for all your precious help.
