What would leak oil onto the starter


the oil leak could be a bad valve cover gasket needing replacement, a head gasket leaking oil, a leaking intake gasket and oil running down along the engine block and dripping. it could be an oil pressure switch that is leaking. it is near the starter while driving or engine running can spray oil onto the starter. unless the oil leak is very bad and has been leaking a long time onto the starter will not cause it to act like a dead battery even then not likely. have a starter draw test down to check condition of the starter.

My 2006 Jetta 2.5L starter keeps going out. The last starter was covered in oil, any ideas?


Oil on the outside is of no great consequence but oil in side the starter is coming from the rear main oil seal . The oil gets inside the windings and affects the brush operation. Find where the oil is coming from and repair it first.
