Remove oil filter, remove 27mm hex nut holding oil cooler. Slide oil cooler off shaft, no need to remove coolant hoses. clean contact surfaces and apply grease lightly to assist seal to seat better. No need fos sealant unless contact surfaces pitted and then you can use a gasket maker sealant.

Oil leaks from the place oil fiter fit on motor


Perhaps but it could also be a bad oil filter seal. Might want to remove the filter to inspect both the seal and the housing.

97 vw golf 1.8 there is a squar box where oil filter fastens to. oil is leaking from top of this box. what is this box and how i fix the leak?


The box is the oil cooler. 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

Oil leak near oil filter, just above the oil filter


Probably the oil cooler seal. This large o-ring is located between the oil cooler and the block adapter. After removing the oil filter, you will see a single nut on the threaded portion of the pipe that the filter screws onto. Removing this nut will allow you to remove the oil cooler. You may want to disconnect the coolant lines from the oil cooler (makes the job a little easier), but be sure to plug the lines as you remove them so you don't loose coolant. The o-ring will be on the top side of the oil cooler. A new o-ring will cost you $3 to $9, depending on where you get it. For a VW repair . . . this one is cheap and pretty easy to do. The parts diagram below may help. The seal is part #19.

Oil in coolant . oil cooler bad but which one


Oil generally will get into the coolant due to a headgasket leaking, or a cracked head.

You'll need to pressurize both systems (OIl & Cooling) to try & determine where the leak is coming from. .

Antifreeze in the oil can cause the pistons to sieze in the cylinders and if you've got oil in the anti-freeze, you more than likely have anti-freeze in the oil, or soon will.

Good luck.

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

Jetta GLI figuring it's a VR6 use a 6 mm allen socket to remove the drain plug to empty the oil and reinstall it. The use a 36 mm socket to remove the oil filter housing, replace the seal and torque it to 25nm.
