Question about 1974 Volkswagen Beetle 1.6
It is a 1970 motor in a 65 body i have a oil leak coming from the distributor
First remove the distributor cap and detach the green wire to the coil. There is a 13 mm nut that holds the clamp to the engine case behind the distributor. Remove it and pull the entire distributor out of the case. Do not drop dirt in... Change the "O" ring and reassemble in the reverse order. The "O'' ring is a VW part and not any "O" ring will work.

SOURCE: 2006 Beetle oil leak
firts you will have to clean off the lower portion of the motor and transmission then i would put a clean peice of cardboard so you can see if you can isolate the location of the fluid leak.you migh also want to check all your fluids to see which one is low in oeder to determine whats leaking.then you can isolate the location then you can have it repaired

The 1st thing that must be done is to have the engine cleaned of all oily residue, then have it driven and put on a car lift or raise the car and put it ion safety stands, get under the car and you will see the source. Also I might add that it leaks while you drive it, it just accumulated under the engine and drips off when you shut it down, go under and look, there will be oily residue all over near the engine
