Oil, Oil, Oil Everywhere


We recently had a 2003 VW GTI 1.8T in the shop with an oil leak.  The culprit was the valve cover gasket….a relatively straight-forward repair.  However, the spark plugs and ignition coils were compromised as a result of the leak and were replaced as well.  Oil seeps may be monitored but leaks should be addressed to minimize engine misfires & driveability concerns.
