SOURCE: Oil Leak
sounds like the oil filter housing gasket is leaking. clean the area up real good with some brake clean and then run vehicle for 15 to 30 min and see if u can see whare its coming from. it may also be coming from valve cover gasket.

it is possible. although inferior oil filters have been known to do the same thing. for that matter inferior mechanics too. run and see if you see drips from the casing of the filter. it IS ALSO POSSIBLE TO HAVE WHAT THEY CALL "DOUBLE GASKET". SO GO GET A NISSAN OIL FILTER, PULL OFF THE OLD ONE AND CHECK FOR THE PRESSENCE OF 2 GASKETS OR O RINGS.

Has the oil filter just been replaced? Sometimes the old gasket sticks to the mounting area, causing leakage if the new filter is installed on top of it. It is also possible the gasket was for some reason missing on a new filter. Let me know if this is not the cause, I'll try to help further.

Probably the oil cooler seal. This large o-ring is located between the oil cooler and the block adapter. After removing the oil filter, you will see a single nut on the threaded portion of the pipe that the filter screws onto. Removing this nut will allow you to remove the oil cooler. You may want to disconnect the coolant lines from the oil cooler (makes the job a little easier), but be sure to plug the lines as you remove them so you don't loose coolant. The o-ring will be on the top side of the oil cooler. A new o-ring will cost you $3 to $9, depending on where you get it. For a VW repair . . . this one is cheap and pretty easy to do. The parts diagram below may help. The seal is part #19.

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
