    Hi all,

    Having no end of problems with our 8L A3 1.9 TDi PD130 at the moment, first the clutch and flywheel and then more recently a wheel bearing and now a massive oil leak.

    The car seems to have lost a lot of oil as the light came on and 1L only just registered on the dipstick. Upon investigation there is a fair amount of oil down the back of the engine, sprayed on the bulkhead and around the general area of what I think is a fuel pump under the intake pipe.

    Does anyone have any idea where this could be coming from? I'll get it booked in somewhere, but would rather have half an idea of where it is coming from.

    Thanks, Max

    Crank case oil seal could have been damaged when the clutch and flywheel were changed?

    Turns out it was just the plastic cam cover seal!
