Your valve cover gasket is shot. That needs to be changed ASAP. If you need to ask how to do it, I would say take it to a good VW shop/dealer and have it done.

Right after you change valve cover gasket, change your oil with the correct amount!!

You will need to replace the coils (and sparkplugs) that were covered in oil. If I was in your seat, I would change all of the spark plugs and coils.

Drive her easy. Do an early 3000 mile oil change after getting all the work done as pulling valve covers and all can allow a lot of dust, grime, dirt, ect. . . into the engine. While it's not needed, I personally would do the early oil change.


Good luck!

Hmm that's truly amazing as those gaskets were shot since last year. And i did more that 4000 miles with oil leaking on the side of the engine and the smell was going to the inside of the car. Now everything makes sense. Thank You Very Much

Yep. It's a issue that can happen with many engines, not just VW.
