I have a 1997 jetta and have been through this. Go to the volkswagen dealer and have them pull up the oil cooler housing. You will see a gasket (o-ring) that seals the two pieces of this housing together. Buy that. Your old one has gotten brittle from years of extreme temperature swings and cracked ( it will be like hard plastic when you remove it.) Unscrew your filter, take a 27mm socket (prob need deep well) and unscrew the nut at the top of stud where the filter screws to. Take it all the way off and remove the old o-ring. Clean the area well and put your new oil swabbed o-ring in and reverse the above steps. 30 min 8 dollar fix. Good luck!

Oil leaks pour from my Oil cooler right above oil filter when I start driving

The oil is most likely leaking from the oil cooler seal. The oil cooler is the square aluminum piece that the oil filter screws onto. To replace the seal, remove the filter, remove both coolant hoses that attach to the cooler, remove the nut that secures the cooler to the block and slide the cooler off the tube. Replace the rubber o-ring seal which is available at the VW dealer. It's inexpensive. Replace everything in reverse order. Good luck

My 97 jetta is pouring oil out of i think the oil cooler. replace the whole thing or are there o rings?

there are o-rings that can be replaced, but you should remove the unit and inspect it for a breach in the tubes before you replace them to be certain that is the issue.

The Gasket between the Oil Cooler and the block has ruptured. This is right above the oil filter and can be gotten to by removing the filter, then removing the 30mm nut holding the cooler to the block. this is a special gasket so use the correct one.

97 Jetta Secondary Air Injection System Incorrect Flow

the air pump is located on the engine towards the front of the vehicle and has apx. 3/4 diameter pipes running to and from it. it is apx. 2 fists in size and it is black plastic. one of the lines on top of the air pump runs to the other side of the engine towards the firewall. at the other end of that pipe is the valve. disconnect that pipe while the vehicle is running. no air out of the pipe means bad pump. air coming out of the pipe means bad valve
