    Thread: 2003 Jetta 24v VR6 Oil in spark plug chamber

    1. 01-07-2013 12:28 AM #1
      Hello all!

      Tonight I decided to change the spark plugs on my 2003 VW Jetta 24v VR6.

      All was going smoothly until I got to the 4th spark plug, and when I pulled out the coil pack it was dripping oil. I called my dad and he said use a paper towel and soak up as much as you can and go ahead and change out the all of the plugs. I used my air compressor to blow out a lot of the oil and used towels to soak most of it up.

      I replaced all the spark plugs started the car, and let it run for about five minutes. I don't hear any missing cylinders so I guess it was mission success.

      • My question is how soon do I need to really worry about oil leaking into the spark plug chamber?
      • Does anyone have any idea how much it will cost to fix?
      • Is this a problem that anyone else has had in the forums?

      I did a search and didn't see anything, that is why I am posting this thread.

      to anyone who replies

      Now Now Colin...at least he did it himself. Guy who bought my 24V paid someone a couple hundred bucks to change three of the plugs.

      I just discovered this issue when changing my coils. Lots of oil in last plug hole. Look like its not going to be cheap to have mechanic do it with all that has to be done (pull intake, bumper cover, slide radiator out a bit, etc.) And a time consuming job to do yourself.
