2003 Jetta 1.8T keeps leaking oil!
Noticed oil on the garage floor starting a few months ago.
Checked everything out and the front camshaft seal was leaking a bit. Replaced valve cover gaskets, both camshaft seals, and the cam tensioner seal.
Oil leak went away for a few weeks. Noticed oil on the garage floor again. Checked everything out and the front camshaft seal was leaking. Replaced it again.
Seemed find for a couple weeks and yesterday I noticed more oil on the garage floor. WTF
Just checked and there is oil again behind the cam position sensor. WTF!!!!
Is there a trick to installing that cam seal or what??? Once I removed the cam cap when I installed the seal, the other time I pressed it in. Both times they leaked so obviously I'm missing something. Am I supposed to use sealant on there or what?
