2.0t TSI Engines Phantom Engine Oil Leaks

What do you think about this video?

Jo Jo: hello. 09 CC 2.0t I have a weird phantom oil leak, a ton of oil pooling on top of the valve cover. with this large amount of oil leaking think you should be able to see it leak. I've had the engine on and revving but can't see where it's coming out of???

Mino Miyashiro: Is there a video on this? I have a mystery oil leak on my 08 2.0t. VCG and vacuum pump leaks already fixed.

NYM4Benny 22: So my 09 a4 2.0 just hit 100k was throwing multi misfires lean codes etc. I replaced the pcv diaphragm, from pulling the oil cap and having it have suction. So after doing so I noticed I now have a small oil leak but it fixed the misfires and now has a high idle after being put into park just about 1k then back down and that’s it. Mil is on with codes 0507 and 2187. Any feedback would be great! Car runs fine other than crappy mpg.

MegaHowtoMan: Love your videos. My brake vacuum pump leaks oil on the driver's side of the engine. Do you have a video on that for the 2.0 TSI engine?

Ghislain Pitre: Hi there,

The area where the oil filler cap is I notice there is oil around..
Do you think the filler cap needs to be replaced?
Anyone had the same issue on the MK7 GTI?

Fred H: charles, i seem to have this problem. is leaking 3 quarts over 6 months and 10,000 miles a posibility from this leak?

BR Edits: Humble mechanic i have a question!! 1. My ac smells so bad when i turn it on for some reason, like almost a burnt smell. Like hot coolant. And 2nd problem is i think im leaking oil behind the engine on my 2012 mk6 gti. Idk where its from, could you help me??

Armando Lopez: My car was leaking a lot of oil, we change the pcv valve, the gasket for the vacuum pump fuel pump (I’m not even sure about the name) and than it was less oil now is leaking from like the top of the turbo where the intake and the turbo are, what it can be

Benjamin Turrano: Hey Charles, I've started changing the oil on my 15 Passat 1.8 TSI and wanted to know if there is additional service or fluid add or change for the turbo system. Any info is appreciated.

Bruce Custom Motors: How are you, hoping you could help me out, I have a audi a5 2.0t tfsi , and my vacume pump keeps leaking, even after replacement. The oil keeps dumping on the transmission. Any thoughts.

Dpr 4real: i would like to think the part he is talking about is the " cam bridge bracket" o ring.

bandgeekforever100: I just change the oil on my 2013 GTI. Started driving, low oil pressure light goes on checks oil still there, Dad checks it almost no oil

Greg M.: Hi Charles, thanks for another great video 👍. My 2009 Tiguan (with 229000km) looks to be displaying the symptoms - very minor oil 'leak' trom front top of timing chain cover, and runs to adjoining rocker cover, then down the engine to slowly drip out. So I'll be getting my mechanic to take a look after showing him this video.
Is there a mileage that this typically happens at?.. or to put it another way, what's the typical life of one of those o-rings? Thanks, Scott.

Daniel Didac: +jgizin thanks for your post but i dont find this reference anywhere (google) can you realize if it was actualized? Other question, my english isn't very good and i dont understand 100% of the vid. +HumbleMechanic this o-ring where is located exactly, inner in the variator? I dont see this o-ring in any parts images... please, help. Best regards

Crystal Hernandez: Hi I have a 2006 passat 2.0t whick is burning 3 to 4 qaurts of oil in about 1 week or so funny thing is i cant find a leak any where please help

Daniel Priore: Hey Charles,

On the off chance you’ll still see this, got a couple quick questions. Just had my timing chain tensioner and covers swapped out a couple hundred miles ago, and had a LOW OIL PRESSURE warning come up. I was basically out of oil with no apparent leaks under the car and no odd engine behavior. The one “symptom” I may have noticed is a greasy (oily) blackish buildup on the rear hatch door and window. This was most noticeable after a 250 mile drive doing 80mph the most of the way. Have you heard of that? It COULD just be road grime, but I’ve never seen anything like that before on the same trip. Are they related? Is excess oil being coughed out my exhaust?

So in short, would no other running engine issues and oily buildup on the rear hatch door AFTER having the timing chain tensioner and covers done indicate that the issue is what you described in the video?


Katey Smitt: I have a 2010 Tiguan 2.0T. I put a little extra oil in the engine, about 3/4 a quart and noticed oil leaking. figured out it was leaking out some valves and hoses cause it was to full. I changed the oil and filled it to 3/4 way up the cross hatch and haven't had any more oil leaking. So check your oil level! If you keep driving like that you will blow gaskets including rear engine seal, this is what causes the big problems.These VW's are very sensitive! I've owned Ford ,Chevy, Dodge, Nissan and Toyota and had no problems with and extra 1/2 quart or full quart, but the VW's are a lot more accurate with these things.

Igor Aleshin: Could you please publish O-Ring part#?

armando martinez: I have a 2008 Audi A4 Quattro with 2.0T. I have notice an oil consumption issue and its coming from the turbo and innercoolers to the intake. Been to the dealer for this problem and they told me I had a bad turbo, replaced the turbo and nothing changed! I went to another shop and they told me that the baffle in the valve cover for the oil/air separator is causing the issue. Before I go spend anymore unnecessary money, do you support this theory?

Dwayne Huff: I have a 2009 VW EOS with 2.0 liter motor. I have a oil leak it likes it is coming from under the breather neck that head toward the roosterpit of the car.  Looks to me like a screen or filter of some kind. any help would be great. Thanks
