      Well my 2.0T (just over 50K) FSI is starting to leak some oil... enough to notice on the driveway.

      I am going to get it up in the air tonight and clean up the bottom / try to locate the cause of the leak.

      I ask all of you B6 2.0T owners - have you had an oil leak? What did it end up being?

      Thanks in advance.

      Did you recently do an oil change. If so it may or could be the oil filter.

      I had a oil leaking from the vacuum pump and the crankshaft sensor and valve cover. I think they all happened around when my PCV's have failed.

      I had an oil leak I noticed on my drive way about 3 weeks ago. Before that happened I noticed 2 months before that I had a little oil on my valve cover in front of the oil filler neck that the cap is on. Cleaned it off didnt think much of it and it returned ( little bit) and cleaned it again. Well, 3 weeks ago my PCV was replaced. The oil leaked in to the 2nd from pass/side spark plug entry. Air pushed oil towards the back of the engine and the pass/side of the engine. Usually when the PCV fails the normal way the engine light comes and it runs very rough. The reverse effect is what happened to myself? The oil was likely being pushed out though the oil cap and the air will push the oil around the back. . Take the engine cover and look for these signs. Hope this is helpful...

      Make sure it's oil and not a leaking CV boot. I thought it was oil too, until I looked under the car.
