You need to remove the engine sump, the pump is inside driven by a small chain

    I don't think so. The oil pump is not chain driven; it's shaft driven. Remove oil pan and baffle. Two bolts hold oil pump in place. Remove them and the oil pump drops straight down. Don't forget to drain oil from pan first -- even then there will be a little left. So put the oil pan plug back in after draining to minimize mess. Baffle is thin metal that installs between oil pan and engine. It's held in place with same bolts as oil pan. Baffle gasket will stick to engine and oil pan. The baffle cannot be removed all the way until the oil pump is unbolted. The oil pick-up fits down through a hole in the baffle. Separate the baffle from the oil pan first. Remove oil pump bolts, then remove baffle and oil pump simultaneously.

Oil leaks pour from my Oil cooler right above oil filter when I start driving


The oil is most likely leaking from the oil cooler seal. The oil cooler is the square aluminum piece that the oil filter screws onto. To replace the seal, remove the filter, remove both coolant hoses that attach to the cooler, remove the nut that secures the cooler to the block and slide the cooler off the tube. Replace the rubber o-ring seal which is available at the VW dealer. It's inexpensive. Replace everything in reverse order. Good luck

The Gasket between the Oil Cooler and the block has ruptured. This is right above the oil filter and can be gotten to by removing the filter, then removing the 30mm nut holding the cooler to the block. this is a special gasket so use the correct one.

It's your oil cooler which needs an o-ring replaced. It's pretty simple if you have the right size deep soket to get to it. I don't have the size in mind but I'm sure it's bigger than a 19mm. It's the nut in the middle where your oil filter spins on. If it's on the flange (block area) you'll need a paper gasket and a long allen socket to remove the three allen bolts.

Oil cooler seal


There are two items that can be leaking oil there. There is a gasket between the oiler cooler flange (the item attached to the engine), and the rubber gasket/seal that goes between the cooler and the flange. (the latter is the one that leaks most often as most oil change shops over tighten the oil filter).
I just replaced the gasket between the cooler and flange recently. I chose to do it quick and dirty: 1. remove oil filter 2. remove oil filter nipple (the portion you screw the filter onto) 2a. you'll need a deep well socket to get the bolt that holds the cooler tight (I believe 27mm)
2b. pull down the cooler, Grab the nipple with a pair of pliers between the flange and cooler and loosen/remove
3. remove old gasket/seal and clean surface 4. put new seal/gasket in place 5. re-seat the nipple back in. use the pliers method, just make sure you don't scar the threads where you NEED them( you don't need all of them). 6. put some gasket sealer (oil friendly) on the gasket and make sure its in place 7. tighten oil cooler onto flange with large nut and socket 8. replace oil filter and add oil as needed.
it is a tight working area, expect some scrapped knuckles, but it isn't too difficult.
good luck

I had the same problem with my T5 130. My mechanic replaced the head gasket to no avail,then we checked the oil filter,that was ok.then we went on to a web forum and found out that the AXD engine suffers from water pump failure.We took it off and it was corroded,the seal had failed and was pumping water into the block.My advice,CHECK WATER PUMP FIRST! Good luck Marc,Somerset.
