    I know there is a gasket that that is between the armature and the engine bock but that is not where I have the leak. My oil leak is on the upper part of the armature as you are looking down it is nowhere close to the engine block but on a lip that is formed on the top side of the armature that seems to be held by two allen screws. Does anyone know where I might find a breakdown of the armature and if those screws are holding something toghether?

2003 VOLKSWAGEN JETTA automatic gasoline engine. shifts hard sometimes.


YOUR TRANSMISSION SOUND LIKE LOW IN TRANSMISSION FLUID. YOU HAVE A FACTORY SEAL TRANSMISSION IF SLIPPING SHIFTING HARD TRANSMISSION COULD HAVE FLUID LEAK. YOUR TRANSMISSION DONT HAVE OIL FILLER TUBE AND DIP STICK.THE VOLKSWAGON DEALERSHIP HAS TO USE EQUIPMENT TO ADD FLUID THROUGH TRANSMISSION FILLER PLUG ON UPPER SIDE TRANSMISSION PAN. IF TRANSMISSION FLUID HAS NEVER BEEN CHANGED LET DEALERSHIP CHANGE TRANSMISSION FLUID AND FILTER AND TRY TO LOCATE LEAK IF FLUID WAS LOW. ALSO MAKE SURE ENGINE FINE TUNED AND TRANSMISSION SHIFT CABLE ADJUSTMENT IS CORRECT.

How do i repair oil filter housing leak?


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!

While putting on the hoses one of the hoses connect to the oil filter housing and it moved slightly but enough for oil to leake do i need to replace a gasket or can i turn it back the other way and solve...


there is a rubber seal behind the oil cooler(that is where the hose connects) the best thing would be to remove the oil filter and oil cooler to replace the seal. I would at least remove the oil filter and try to tighten the large nut that holds the oil cooler on and see if that stops the oil leak

Where do I get a wrench to drain the oil from the oil filter in a 2007 jetta?


hi, how do you mean drain the oil from the oil filter you need to replace the oil filter not just drain it.

If you cant get the oil filter off then what you can do is hammer a screwdriver through the middle of the oil filter so that it comes out of the other side this will then give you more leverage as you can use the screw driver to undo the oil filter.

Once you have the filter off make sure you rub some clean engine oil around the rubber seal on the new filter before fitting it to ensure that you have a proper seal and no leaks.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

TRANSMISSION OIL LEAK


Hi, if there is no dip stick, the transmission may be sealed. in this case, your issue will be a main seal or faulty transmission pane seal(gasket). if possible, raise your vehicle so that you can get a good look at the pan and main seal area..
