    Comma usage

    Hi,

    When I went through the below said content, I got some doubt:

    Lubricate two grease fittings at the bottom of the suspension cylinder and a grease fitting at the top of the cylinder, located in the engine compartment.

    Does the "located in the engine compartment" belong to both the contents of before and after "and" or only to the content after "and".

    Also what if, if the comma is not in the sentence.

    Thanks in advance for your clarification.

    It is the cylinder that is located in the engine compartment.
    Also what if, if the comma is not in the sentence.
    Then there would probably be another cylinder located somewhere else.
