Default Help finding something to cover up oil drain!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I dont have the rubber cap that came on the nipple where you attach the oil return line. Anyone have any idea of a part number or something from mazda. Tried calling a dealr today and the guy was like. I dont know what you are talking about. I dotn see it on my diagram.

O'reillys had nothing that size. Only NAPA is pretty far from my house. I need it like tomorrow if possible. Please Any ideas

If needing a roadside repair suggest a short 3-4 inches of 5/8 or 3/4" hose. Screw in a fat short bolt of screw in one end and secure it with a hose clamp. There is your cap. Clamp it in place.

if it's not too brittle anyway.
