    T5 Oil Leak Location?


    Noticed the other day after pulling out of the drive there was an oil spill on the drive. Checked underneath and in the center of the vehicle and about level with the center of the front wheels there is a manufactured hole where the oil is coming from. Please see attached photo. Checked the main engine area and could not see an noticeable leaks. The engine oil level on the dipstick reads over max.

    The gearbox is an automatic one, could it be fluid from there? How would one check and are there any other areas on the vehicle you would recommend to check?

    Haven't had the vehicle long and if someone could point me in the right direction in tracking this issue down, it would be much appreciated.

    That is to allow condensed oil in the boost air system to drip out as it oozes from the pipe couplings, quite normal as long as it is not excessive.

    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    Your car spec says 0. Can I suggest that you add your car spec to your signature as it will save users asking every time, if you know the engine code that will also be great? Oh you can't do this of a phone. Adding your car spec
