    Hi all, i was topping up my oil to my 5 door 1.25 ford fiesta lx when i noticed a small pipe was hanging detached from the engine. I put it back in loosely. It says 'eco' on it. What is it for? Here is a pic:

    What kind of engine are you using? I am not really a techy but maybe air-intake?

    Taking off the large black plastic cover above the motor will get you a good look at where the line goes. Probably easier to tell then.
