From volkswagen would be the easiest. Shouldn't cost much. They will mail it to you you do not even have to go to the dealer. Just call any dealer and ask to speak to the parts department, nearly everyone now will allow you to this over the phone. Hope this helps, if not I can offer you several ways to get it.

SOURCE: Oil Leak

Take the car to a car wash and power wash the engine. Do this ONLY with a cold engine. And be prepared to have problems with it starting as water get's into the electrical components. Take some WD-40 with you to spray inside distributor caps, on spark wiring, etc. to get the engine running again.

Then check the engine weekly to see where the oil is coming from.

SOURCE: Need to remove oil filter housing - oil leaking

This is not an easy repair in your driveway, but can be done. 1st thing, have you checked to see if the oil filter is the issue or is it the drain plug? If its the oil filter housing gasket, you will need to remove the filter. The housing is held in place by the threaded bolt assy that the filter screws onto. You will need to remove that bolt, remove the coolant hoses. Clean the engine block surfaces, for the new gasket to mate to, clean the cooling housing surfaces, install the bolt through the housing, and install the gasket onto it. Then install the bolt/housing into the block and tighten the bolt. Install the coolant hoses, oil filter. Fill the cooling system with the coolant that you removed. Fill the engine with oil, start and check for leaks.

SOURCE: 97 Jetta oil leak from oil filter

It is your oil cooler with out a doubt, and most likely all you do need is an O ring its a simple fix. For how old the car is it became brittle and needs replaced, but hopefully (which there is a slim chance) but your oil cooler could be cracked but again its very unlikely. And make sure you do not drive the car. You can seriously damage your engine this way.

Leaking oil

It is leaking from somewhere and getting onto the exhaust manifold or pipe. Prime suspects are the cam cover gasket, distributor shaft seal, or oil filter mounting.

You can buy a fluoro tracer dye eg

You give the engine a really good clean all over, add this dye to the oil in recommended amount, drive around a bit, and shine a blacklight lamp on the engine parts.

The leak will glow. If it is everywhere too much, clean and repeat with less driving before checking.

I have a splashing massive oil leak from the front driver side of the engine as if the oil was being pumped out as soon as the engine starts. I can't get to where I can see where the leak is coming fr

Hard to say unless you specify what vehicle this is. One way or another, you need to get to where the leak is in order to find the problem. In any case, start by checking the oil filter, and if it is not engine-mounted, check the hoses running between the filter housing and the engine.

Most likely place for oil into coolant is oil cooler, the aluminum box that mounts between the oil filter and a flange that comes off the block.

My 96 jetta 2.0 is leaking oil from the top of the oil filter mounting area where the water hoses connect to looks like it has two or three pieces bolted together might be plastic.can I take apart...

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

Cracked engine??!!
Yes there are freeze plugs, but you need to keep your coolant up to a level that it won't freeze!
You could have, and should have it checked for, major damage and need a new engine!

Check the filter to make sure it the right one and on tight. Do not drive without oil. Engine will seize-up.

93 Eurovan will not start....

Have you tried adding gas treatment? We have the same problem with our 1995 Eurovan when the weather gets cold and wet. Gas treatment does the trick every time.
