KURBELWELLENGEHÄUSEENTLÜFTUNG


Explanation:
Talking about motors?
If so, the word you are looking for is
KURBELWELLENGEHÄUSEENTLÜFTUNG
(no less than 4 nouns cramped together in this one! Aaah, German!)
KURBELWELLE= crankshaft
GEHÄUSE= case
ENTLÜFTUNG= relief passage
i.e. the passage coming up right from the crankshaft case, providing a relief passage for the hot, expanding oil.

hope, this is what you were looking for
good luck!

Öldruckbegrenzungsbohrung


Explanation:
Without further context, it's difficult to provide a meaningful suggestion.

"relief passage" has some very specific applications, in an automotive application (master cylinder check valve), it would be Drosselbohrung [Schmitt, Kfz-Technik]

High pressure oil at either end of the piston will push the relief ball valve off its seat and fill the relief passage with oil at high pressure. At the opposite end of the passage the relief ball valve is held against its seat and holds the high pressure in the relief passage. as the piston moves close to its limits of stroke, the adjustable relief plungers push the relief ball valve off its seat and the pressure is relieved. The distance the piston can move is dependent upon the total front axle/steering system geometry and tire size. The relief valve plungers are adjustable to allow for variations or changes in these areas.

which makes reference to a Drosselbohrung as part of the engine start ("Beim Startvorgang kann dabei ein Teil des in der Brennkammer des Zylinders befindliche Kraftstoff-Luft-Gemisches durch eine sogenannte Drosselbohrung im Dekompressionsventil entweichen.")

Lacking a more specific context, I'd suggest s.th. like Öldruckbegrenzungsbohrung or Öldruckentlastungsbohrung
