Question about 1997 Volkswagen Golf
I thought the oil was leaking from my oil filter. I changed the filter and the oil still leaks. It seems to be coming from the unit that the oil filter attaches too..Is there a seal between this part and the engine? What is the proper name for the part the oil filter attaches too? I lost 4 litres of oil in a matter of minutes.
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.
