Engine oil leak...''93 VW Passat 2.8L VR6

Hey CaptainKeys.....you still around? I may have mis-lead you,sorry. The Passat oil leak I have is NOT at the front of the engine per say like near any pulleys ...rather the front of the CAR on the SIDE of the engine. Its leaking from a round unit next to the oil filter spin-on housing. I just dont know what that unit is called. It appears to spin off with a 1''hex fitting at the forward facing end. My cd manual wont be here for 5-7 days yet. I cant find ANY engine pictures online to identify components & I have hand surgery in 3 days and wont be able to fix the leak after that for 8-10 weeks min. Sure would like to get to it before then. Any other ideas?

Adjust or replace the shiftlock sensor. It unlocks the shifting mechanism when you put your foot on the brake.

If there is an ignition problem, the tumbler will need replacement soon. This can be caused by an overloaded keychain. Best to do it now while it still is working, then have it fail and leave you stranded.

I will suggest getting a Chilton manual. It is a book. You can find the manual on-line at www.autozone.com
I would still recommend getting your own copy, so you can write on it and get it greasy.

How does the car run otherwise?
The coolant, is it coming from the same place?
The oil leak, is it near a pulley?

How to change the transmisson oil and filter on a 1993 vw passat with a vr6


My service manual for a 90-93 Passat makes no mention of a VR-6 engine but here's what it says for the regular auto transmission.
Loosen the bottom pan bolts and let the old fluid drain into a catch pan. Remove it and clean it . Replace the strainer (filter) if it can't be cleaned or is damaged. Replace the pan gasket, be sure the 4 corner gasket spacers are in place before tightening the bolts.Torques are 71 in-lbs for the filter and 89 in-lbs for the pan bolts.

To check the fluid level, the engine and trans must have a minimum of 6 miles of driving on them before the level is checked. The engine is running when you check it. The 20*C mark is the cold level.

VW recommends this be done every 2 years or 30,000 miles.

What would cause oil to leak above oil filter on 1998 VW passat 6cyl engine 20V Turbo


Hey that's a good question - sorry no knowledge of these critters...
You could try a haynes or chiltons manual - those found at your local auto supply house (about $20-25) or your local library (free to take out) for your year, make, model.
Best regards

Engine diagram 96 vw passat vr6


PCV valves aren't common on European cars, instead they regulate vacuum flow by connecting a small diameter hose to a very small hole in the intake manifold or throttle body.

The other end of the hose is typically connected to the top of the engine at the oil mist and flame trap which is usually inside one of the cam covers. The main engine crankcase breather hose typically also connects there and sometimes is connected to the air cleaner side of the air intake and sometimes directly to the air filter housing.

The small hole generally needs checking during maintenance as they frequently become blocked. The hole is something like 5/64 inch but mostly it is beneficial to enlarge it just a little, say to 3/32.

Sorry can't advise you about the diaphragm valve...

Oil in water resovour vw 2002 passat


Could be just the OIL COOLER. VW IS CORRECT.
If the oil cooloer fails internely you will have a mix of coolant and oil. In the engine and in the Radiator,

But not to say the other guys were wrong...
