SOURCE: oil leak on 2005 -2006 new model passat

well this is an expensive repair as such because of the time involved,a reputable garage would check the clutch and gearbox spigot shaft as a matter of course but the seal can only be reached by removal of everything ,if its just a small drip then have it done as and when the clutch needs replacing is the best advice i can give,adding a leak sealer for engines could help as it makes the seal soft again but if the end of the crank is worn then no ,but it could work and often does.and its not that expensive if it saves you a lot of work for now.As for mileage well treat it as a guide only as mileage tampering still goes on and you will never know weither its the garage or a previous owner who didnt want to lose money.but make sure you check oil level in gearbox in case its leaking out of spigot shaft seal .engine oil smells like engine oil but gearbox oil stinks trust me ,trying to get it when it drips up your arms ,,,,.Also as a matter of course check the engine breather as evan a slight blockage here will increase back pressure in engine causing it to leak oil .How long to remove ,,well about 3 hrs roughly if all the bolts come undone on the suspension an hour or so to change seal and check over maybe evan pushing seal in or out a bit to miss wear on crank if any,rebuilding with a strong lad to assist in alignment and moving about another 2/3 hours if it all goes well with no complications .

SOURCE: locate oil filter in vw touareg

Oil filter is somewhere beneath the engine.

Buried your head under the car and you will find the oil filter above a cross-brace. There it is easy because there is enough room for you to remove and replace it.

Cheers.

I have 2004 VW Toureg, went to change engine oil and it has some plug in it that says thailand on it. It looks like a possible temporary plug. Was wondering if previous owner stripped it and put bandaid on...


changing the oil drain plug is actually normal maintenance. they are used and abused so over time they will start to leak. easiest way to know if it was stripped; next time you change your oil take a good look at the threads on the oil pan. are they rounded or kinda sharp? if it was stripped its not a big concern as long as it was re-threaded properly and the correct size and thread type installed afterwards. you cna get all the proper tools too do this your self at your local auto parts store.

Have it towed back to the shop, it sounds like they installed the filter improperly or left the drain plug loose.

2004 vw touareg 2.5 tdi the oil sump was full of water and oil mix,also inlet manifold had oil and water mix.number 5 cylinder had locked up and engine would not turn,so i removed glow plugs and cranked...


Can not be water pump, because that has a vent hole to the outside, and does not at all allow access to crankcase or cylinders. Oil cooler is also unlikely because oil is under more pressure than the water, and it would not get into the cylinder.
Water in the cylinder means up high.
That means head gasket or cracked head.
You can tell with a leak down test.
You borrow the gauge from a place like Autozone, and replace the water reservoir cap with it. Over pump it, about 30 psi. And watch for leaks. If same cylinder keeps filling, then you know where the bad gasket or head crack is. Diesels often crack heads. Not hard to do, but new head is not cheap. Probably $500 for part, $400 labor.

2001 vw beetle tdi diesel. How do I check the automatic transmission fluid? Also, my mechanic says he can't change transmission fluid or do a flush because there are no drain or fill plugs and no pan? What...


VW automatic transmissions require a special filling tool to fill the transmissions using gravity. They also never recommend a fluid or filter replacement unless a problem is evident. (a leak or shifting problem). They also use a special brown synthec oil that i believe is only available at VW. My advice is to go to a Volkswagen dealer. I'll still tell you how it works. To check the level the vehicle transmission must be cold (not driven at least 8-9 hrs). With a scanner plugged to check fluid temperature in the transmission. RFemove the red cap on the little tube. It's clipped. Once the red cap is removed the black cap can be pulled out. This is the fill tube. This is where the fluid is added using the fill tool. Start the car and remove the 5mm allen screw which looks like a drain. Inside this is a little tube that goes upwards like 3 cm in the pan. (when the oil heats up it expands and leaks out here) With the car running in park, if oil runs out of the pan hole before 35 deg. c there is too much. Let it drain. If no oil leaks at 35 deg. c it's because there is not enough and oil has to be added while the temperature is going up. At 35-40 deg. c oil should spill out ,reinstall the 5 mm allen with the seal, reinstall the filler plug and red cap lock. If the oil is over 26 deg. c before starting your better off waiting till it cools off to have time to add or let drain depending. Strange procedure but the right one.
