I have a water leak coming from the engine of my mark 4 vw golf gt tdi. It appears to be coming from just under the oil filter? i'm not sure what the part is and whether it can be fixed or needs replacing? Its a metal box shape just under the oil filter and the water seems to be leaking from the top of this part?

Where is the oil pressure sensor of vw golf 1999


The sensors are usually found on the oil filter flange housing with the oil cooler. Also there are two dynamic sensors to measure pressure below 2000 rpm and above 2000 rpm so it could warn you of pressure loss within those two ranges.

Water coming in drivers mat area 2006 vw passat 2.0 tdi


Hi

Common fault with VW's firstly check the door seal at the bottom and make sure it is not wet inside.

Next place is under the bonnet, just under the windscreen below the wipers you will see a long tray the "skuttle panel" leafs and muck build up in here where the drain plugs are once they get blocked the water starts coming in the car from behind the dash board. You should be able to see the problem visibly and it should be easy to clean.

I had this on a golf about 2mths ago, and a polo a while ago and also on a few passats.

Regards

Coolant leak in VW Golf mark 5 1.9 TDi auto DSG


There is, however, an air outlet into the driver's foot area. If the heater core is leaking, the air coming through the heater core will carry the droplets into the entire air ducting system. The driver's foot area may be the closest outlet. If it smells like coolant, you need to replace the heater core regardless of where in the cabin the coolant is coming out.

Golf GT Tdi 115 - performance when warm.


you dont say what miles the car has done.but you should now be using semi synthetic 20/50 oil and try using a fuel additive(redex/wynns)to clean the injectors.if you are using oil it is possible that the engine has lost some of its compression due to ring/valve wear.did you know that to convert your engine to a 130/150bhp unit,you only need to change the ecu try"diesel tuning"website.....

Golf gt tdi 2.0 140 bhp mk 5 - esp light


When there's something wrong with the brake pressure that handbrake warning light comes on.

The ESP warning light could be caused by a lot of things, but most likely it's a dirty fuel filter. Don't take my word for it though, just go to the VW dealer and have it read the faultcodes from the ECU, which should point you/them in the right direction.

Alternatively, when you have the right equipment (= VAGCOM + cable) and knowledge, you or a friend yould diagnose the ECU yourself.

From the sounds of it, you'll need a small service (air filter and oil filter change, etc.) anyways. Don't forget to reset the ECU (or dis- and reconnect the battery) afterwards to erase the faultcode from memory (when there's still something wrong, it'll return soon enough).

You might get lucky with a small service :)

We think it could be the engine management system - would recommend going to a reputable garage for it to be reprogrammed.

Vw golf gt tdi 115.


If you are losing water and it is not being forced out of the reservoir (unlikely) and ther is no sign of it dripping from the engine plumbing... then if your acceleration is starting to diminish... or you seem to not have as much power as usual, then it is probably a faulty cylinder head gasket... sorry.... hopefully not, as this is a bit of a job to fix.
