#3 of 82 1985 GTI Oil Filter Housing Leak
Jan 09, 2008 (10:33 am)
The other day I started my old rust bucket up after two weeks of relatively cold weather and oil started pumping out of the top of the oil filter housing immediately. And heavily. My question is: What's the problem and how do I fix it? I was about to just go buy an oil filter and try replacing that, but I don't really mind putting in a whole new housing if needed and only want to go to the autoshop once (I'm on foot). I included a photo of my filter and where the oil is coming from. Thanks in advance.

I just purchased a 2002 VW GTI Annivesary Edition. It did not come with an owner's manual and I was trying to find out what the "ARS" button is used for.

You need either a new o-ring gasket for the oil cooler or replace the oil cooler assembly (that's what your oil filter is attached to). There are two coolant hoses attached to it, so it may require draining the cooling system.

#7 of 82 oil filter itself?

Hi zamondo...We discussed oil filters once on our website. Tho Fram oil filters were the best 20 years ago, several v. knowledgeable posters consider Fram to make the worst constructed oil filters available today...truly flimsy. Your problem may be resolved with another brand filter.

Had same problem...if you would clean off all the crap on your engine ..you will see that below that wire is a plug type sensor......remove wire...remove the oil pressure sensor and replace it...my parts guy mentioned that they fail all the time..oil shoots up thru nylon housing and where the metal pin is....cheap fix.
