I have noticed today brown gunk in my oil when checking my levels, do no know how long its been like this. I also noticed that infront of my filler cap there was a pipe on the left that had come off completely. Would this be my head gasket on way out or would that pipe have anything to do with it? I have took a picture but not sure how to upload on here.

thats not a breather, its main air hose from filter assy, needs a proper clip to hold this on to throttle body.

brown gunk can be just a condensation issue, especially if your not losing water.

clean out the whole breathing system, plus fresh oil/filter...before draining oil, spray some carb cleaner down the dipstick tube and keep dipping the dipstick till it comes back cleaner

Oh ok i will check the level tomorrow then i dont think it was low but probably didnt take much notice as i didnt know what it was for. thanks for your help though. If it running low what do i top it up with? can i just use normal water?
