Oil leak


Registered User
hello i would be very gretful if you could help with an issue

i have an a3 2004 2.0 tdi & have clear oil patch which is at the bottom front bumper where it meets the under tray its more at near side(if that makes sense)

the oil fells water&oil and its clean not like engine oil.

thanks for any help



is this on the passenger side at the front?

If so,that is where the pipes connect to the intercooler and it is normal for some oil to be spurted and since your car is 04, that is a 4 year build upof gunky oil

I got mine cleaned by taking the sump cover off and blasting it

If it is excessive,your clips might be shafted or you might have a problem to which i would recommend a mechanic or if you are brave enough, your local dealer!
