2.0 TDI OIL LEAK!!!!! HELP NEEDED!
Hi, i am the owner of a 2004 A3 2.0 TDI SPORT. While driving on the motorway my oil light flashed on, i pulled into the nearest service station, topped up my car with oil and found there was a leak coming from underneath the car. To my stupidity, i decided to try and make it back home, driving about 10 miles before a loss of power and ending up broken down on the hard shoulder.
I have had a mobile mechanic come and look at the car and he pointed out that my turbo pipe had came loose and must have been rubbing against my oil-filter housing. The corner of the oil-filter housing has worn away and this seems to be where the oil is leaking from.
A few questions:
How long should it take to change the oil-filter housing?
Will i need to replace the oil cooler as well?
Is this a difficult job?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance
