    Valve cover is leaking oil on my 2000 1.9 TDI Passat. Have changed the gasket but still leaking badly. Have been told to change whole cover but VW want £120,00 Any ideas?


    will try to help.if it's only the valve cover leaking,i'm guessing they sold you the rubber one that says ne rtv sealant needed. take your back off, try not to break the rubber seal when removing!clean the top of head where gasket goes. clean the valve cover really good!clean the grooves out that the gasket slides into. buy some blue trv glue, apply a thin coat to top of head, let it setup while you apply another thin coat to valve cover, let set 10mins. apply gasket to valve cover making sure to push the gasket into the grooves on valve cover. don't worry about neatness. let the valve cover set on a hard surface with the gasket against the hard flat surface[such as a garage floor,or clean driveway] after10 more minutes install the valve cover,make sure and take your time. place valve cover onto motor,than hand start each bolt to insure thay are going into the prope bolt holes. after you have each bolt hand started, start at center of valve cover snugging the bolts down to motor. do not crank down or apply excessive force when tightening those bolts. you should see some of that blue rtv glue coming out around the valve cover when applying torque to the valve cover bolts. only secure them snug at first. let car set for 15mins. start car and look for leaks around the cover, do not over tighten those bolts but you may need to look for a leak, go to bolt closest to leak and turn it 1/4 at a time until leak stops. but if you do this step by step, you'll not have a leak issue. you may have pinched the gasket when you replaced it. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

    When i take off the plug wire for the first two plugs they are covered in oil. when im trying to crank it and put it in drive my rpms drop to zero.


    The oil you are seeing is more than likely due to a blown valve cover gasket. Replacing one on these vehicles is not too difficult a task and not too pricey. The gasket runs about $40 at most chain stores.

    First clean off the top and sides of the engine and make sure that it is clear of loose dirt and debris as you will be exposing some delicate pieces of the engine. Next label and remove the spark plug wires and the vacuum lines that are connected to the valve cover. The next step is to remove the bolts that hold the valve cover in place. These bolts are the torx topped bolts that are visible on the top of the valve cover. I believe that there are 6-8 of them. Once they are out gently remove the valve cover and inspect the channel that runs along the outside edge for any possible remaining pieces of the original gasket that may be stuck to it. Place the valve cover aside in a clean safe area. Next inspect the channel along the mating surface of the engine for any remaining pieces of the original gasket as well. After cleaning the channel to free it from any debris begin placing the new gasket into it's channel. Align the gasket in the channel around the outside of the block and around the spark plug holes and then carefully press it into place. After giving the valve cover another look to make sure it is free from any foreign materials replace it back on the engine and replace the valve cover bolts and tighten to spec. Depending on the condition of the original spark plugs you may wish to replace these as well... having been saturated in oil I would suggest it. I like ngk's. Be sure to check the gap when replacing. Replace the the wires and vacuum lines and then give the engine a try.

    Head Gasket?? Valve cover Gasket???


    most likely it is the valve cover gasket. it covers the valve train where there is alot of oil to lube the top of the motor. if the head gasket was leaking it may have more signs of running poorly. also having coolant leaks also. so i will have to say valve cover gasket. now usally you may have a oil burning smell with it depending on the area of the lek but not always.

    the valve cover can easily be seen when the hood is open. it is right on the top and where it meets the clyinder head is where the gasket is and the leak can be seen.

    if you have more question please ask.

    I need to replace the valve cover gasket on my voltswagon jetta


    you probably mean the valve head gasket.

    In this case this is serious work and you should contact a local VW dealership or mechanic and have them do this work for you to insure a job well done. If you simply mean your Valve cover, then this is no big deal and can be done by taking out the 4 screws found at the corners of the valve cover and then simply lifting the cover free and replacing it with a new one/tightening the screws back down.

    hope this helps :)
