    Mine leaks a bit of oil from the gasket /bung around one of the injectors where it goes through the rocker cover on the offside of the engine. Has done it since i got it, the rubber was originally twisted. I got it fixed at a service but it started to weep again. Has not been a problem other than some oil soaking into the foam on th inside of the plastic engine cover.

    My '99 2.5 V6 leaks too and I'm hoping TC Garage can diagnose the problem next week. I hate having a leaking car.

    I'll post here if they find the source.

    Silicon - it sounds like you have a carbon copy of mine!

    I have a slight leak coming from one of my seals just visibile under the cover!

    2.5 tdis are notorious for leaking cam cover gaskets, they normally only leak from the round rubber seal of the o/s head when a cambelt has been done and this has not been replaced, also the excess fuel run of pipes that come off of the injectors tend to become porus after a while recommend replacing these if they look damp, this engine does not really suffer from cam shaft oil seals leaking!
    good luck!

    Mine is leaking - was a little now quite a lot. Audi say it's the upper sump and want 360 to do it ( car is an early A6 2.5tdi (AFB engine))...

    Any tips on fixing this...is it simply a gasket or does it need silicon sealant ?

    I have the new upper gasket that you can have if you want it (mp me your address).

    The sump is in two bit's, you have to take the first sump off to get at the bolts for the second one.
