Sounds like your turbo return pressure line may be leaking i have seen it rot near the hold down bracketby the oil filter housing on the driver side of the engine in the front so i bet thats your issue

2006 VW Jetta 2.5 has a bad oil leak. Dealer says it is a bad air pump. Is this possible?


You won't have a bad oil leak from a bad air pump... unless the dealer means "Turbocharger" when they say "air pump". A turbocharger DOES have an oil supply, and a leak from it means you need repair very badly.

Oil leaking around turbo on 2000 jetta


If you are getting boost, your turbo is likely not blown. There is a banjo bolt connection for the turbo oil. If it has loosened, then it would be leaking oil on the outside of the turbo. A blown turbo leaks on the inside (I believe, though not positive).

I don't have a TDI, but have a VW 1.8T with a turbo I recently replaced.

There is really nothing to fix other than to replace the turbo. It is not a tough job (at least the 1.8T wasn't) though it took 11 hours to complete. So you should try to get the oil leak fixed (near too much heat to ignore) but should likely only need to replace if it's not providing boost, or making strange sounds.

My 2002 VW Jetta leaks on the passenger side every time it rains. The water leak is worse when the car is parked and not being driven. I suspect it has something to do with the weather stripping.


i was a water leak specialist for vw and mainly the leaks are from around the rubber at the windshield as well as follow down through the antenna the 2 fuses under the drivers dash are 45.00 each 20 years ago im sure three more than that now ...use a garden hose and start low and after a few minutes raise it little by little until leak is found as well as a 2nd person in the vehicle with a light to look for the leak you may caulk or of that nature using tape to ensure a nice straight line on the windshield and not make a mess sometimes it even comes from the fenders and so look carefully and raise the hose upwards going slowly allowing the water to penetrate the area in which it finds its way in

Antifeeze leak on my 2000 VW Beetle Turbo


Most likely a leaky gasket. The water pump is a likely candidate, but also could be from a bad radiator hose/thermostat connection. Would suggest washing down the engine with a hose connected to the hot water. While the engine is cold use the hose to wash off the oil & grease deposits and old antifreeze. Allow the engine to dry without running the car. Once dry start the car and be prepared to look for the first sign of a leak. Sounds like a dealer issue since there is very little work clearence between the front of the engine and the car body. Barely enough room to be able to change the serpentine belt.
