New member here with a 2013 Golf 2 Dr base model that has an oil leak at back of engine. Thought it was the sump gasket but the oil drips only after for a short time after driving, if sitting for days then no more additional leaks so likely not the pan.

There are also drops of oil on the exhaust manifold flanges, where is that coming from - I don't see much oil seeping around the valve cover gasket. I may have missed something; all ideas appreciated.

If you don't have seeping around the valve cover, and you don't see an active oil pan leak, then it probably is the dreaded vacuum pump leaking, most people more than likely had to replace, repair or "delete".
