1996 Volkswagen Other Repair Question
96 VW Jetta oil leak
I have a Haynes manuel, but it doesn't have any sort of diagram for this that I can find. I need to know the name of the parts that are shown in the picture, and if anyone can tell me the easiest way to fix this problem, that would help alot. Thanks
It is your oil cooler seal leaking. Fortunatly you have a 2.0L. To change this "O-ring" you'll need to remove the oil filter, use a deepwell socket or cresent wrench to remove (it's either a 27 or 30mm, very thin, nut) the nut. You can move the oil cooler down the threaded tube (that the oil filter screws onto) to get it to a point where you can take the old o-ring out (which is probably split). If you choose to remove the threaded tube DO NOT damage the threads! The o-ring will run around $7. Good luck!
