Hello, I have been looking into the source of an oil leak, and think I might have figured out what it is.
I was getting burnt oil smell, and the smoke was coming up from behind the right side valve cover. I cleaned the valve cover off, and it's not leaking there. It's down below and I couldn't see exactly where. Reading around it sounds like it could be the cam adjuster seal, but they say the cause itself is the PCV being clogged.
They talk about 3 parts, but I wanted to get the name and part number of the commonly replaced parts and make sure I got the right stuff for my engine, since apparently not all 30V have the same parts, and mine is a B5.5 (after the break 2001).
Smoke comes from below there, the black disc is silver now that I cleaned it.
Looks like oil is dripping off here, I just couldn't identify for sure what needed to come out:
Looks like here:
have some good info, but like I said, if I could get confirmation if someone recognizes the part or knows which one fits my car.
