Default Picked up a '90 C4 w/51K miles

Came across this car about a month or so back.. original owner. Has not been driven regularly for past 20 years. Been sitting on battery tenders and regular oil changes.

Engine tray was on so I took that off as the first thing. Yea it leaks but case and transmission is dry. Thinking its typical valve covers, timing chain cover etc. There is also this oil line that runs right under the fan which is leaking the most.

Oil gauge is pegged to the top so I am going to siphon some oil out. Drive it around and assess more. Control arm bushings will need to be replaced. Tires are from 2006 and brand new which also will need replacement.

Welcome to the club!

That oil line is a common failure.

It runs from the oil filter housing in the rear passenger side fender to the bottom of the case on the driver's side.

Thank you. What is the fix? Replacement or new clamps?

I siphoned just under 2 qts of oil out. Oil level now sits around the bottom mark.

New line. I think it's like $375 and it also has a heat shield that may need replacing, that's what the hose clamp you see is for.

It's part hardline and part steel braided.

You may find them cheaper if you Google the Part Number...
