  1. 2.5l Inline-5 Engine Forum
    I have a 2009 vw Jetta with a 2.5L inline 5 and I keep losing oil. I assumed it was just being burnt up until I looked under the hood and saw a hole in the left side of the engine right under the valve cover. There’s another one right next to it with a plug so I’m assuming the plug popped or...
  2. Golf/GTI VII
    I have a 2016 Golf TSI and sometimes when I start my car it will dumb oil on the ground but stop when I start actually driving. I put a new oil pan on about a year ago but I don’t think it’s that because I’m seeing oil on top of my engine. It looks like it might be coming from my head gasket but...
  3. 2.5l Inline-5 Engine Forum
    EDIT: Part identified as Camshaft plug or end cap. Thanks everyone for the help! Hopefully this keeps oil inside the engine instead of all over the engine bay. Noticed I'm leaking a LOT more oil than I should be (I know I shouldn't be leaking any, but I digress...) Looked for leaks and found...
  4. CC
    I have a 2013 VW cc with the famous 2.0 TSI engine, and 100k miles on it. I just checked my oil level yesterday night and it’s well below MIN, it’s barely detectable on the stick at all, only one tiny drop on the very end of the stick (checked on cold car on flat surface). I never checked my oil...

  6. Jetta/GLI VI
    Hey guys, I popped under the engine cover to take a look where I might be losing oil from. Leaving the car overnight I would get small drips of oil on the floor but nothing severe. No engine lights indicating low oil and it's been like this for a while now. I did notice however on the back end...

  9. Jetta VII
    So I've already brought my car to the dealer once about the issue and there remedy was to just clean it off and inspect next service. Well no less than 500 miles later I'm still finding accumulating oil around my engine. I'm a Technician for Toyota but love my VW's and never had this issue on my...

    I just got done fully building my MK5 from the bottom up- and been having trouble with an oil leak that I could not find well after taking the front seal cover off for the third time I finally found it but I’m not sure how to fix it. It’s these two caps under the water pump. Thanks in advance...

    so thank god I was only 20 seconds away from home when I noticed light white smoke coming from behind my car. I parked it and looked under and noticed I had oil leaking and turned it off immediately. Gave the engine about an hour to cool down before jacking it up and inspecting, by then the...
  12. 2.0T FSI, TSI, and TFSI (EA113) Engine Forum
    Just bought my first ever 2008 mkv GTI FSI and it is stock except for a deleted resonator. I am having 2 or 3 drops of oil drip onto my driveway every time after driving. It is coming from the charge pipe joint before the intercooler. I recognize that some oil is normal in the charge piping but...

    Hi everyone. I hope all is well in your world. I bought my granddaughter a 2010 Passat, 2.0T. CCTA engine. I've been chasing an oil leak. Took it to the dealership and they found the bolt hole at the 4 o'clock position where the high pressure fuel pump bolts to the head... stripped. They...
  14. Eos
    Hey y'all. Could someone please tell me where the oil level should read on the dipstick of my 13 Eos? I noticed that theres a crosshatch area and thought it should read somewhere within that area. When I checked it after the dealership did my oil change it was well above the crosshatch. They...
  15. Jetta/GLI VI
    I recently had a big problem with oil coming from the oil filter housing. I replaced the filter and put the new gasket in and I am still having a small leak. Anybody have any ideas why this is happening? I even put the housing back and and tighten it pretty tight. Is there any torque spec? Plz help
