2006 Volkswagen Jetta 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic
I made the mistake of going "old school" and changing my own oil for a change. I have a 2006 VW TDI. I think I may have overserviced the oil quantity. The dipstick on that car is hard to see as far as the oil marks. That was in October. I was out of town and hadn't used the car for a month and a half after the change. I am now driving it again and notice multiple drips under the car. It's obviously leaking oil. What are the consequences to overservicing the system, and is the answer to simply drain some oil out? I thought I'd ask before delving into this any further. Could I have done any permanent damage to the engine, and where does the oil leak from in the event that the leak is caused by overservicing.
have the same problem?
