I used my phone to take a closer look. Everything seems dry. Sprayed some parts cleaner to make sure it's totally clean and will check again after a longer drive; hopefully just a spill.

Yea, way too far back. My guess (hope) is spillage when filling the oil.

I'll take a look tonight if I see anything above it. Could be timing chain cover gasket but I doubt it would magically start leaking because the engine was out. They wouldn't have to mess with that...

That's what I was wondering (not an oil line). I suspect it's maybe a drop or two of spillage when topping off the oil. The filler neck is pretty much right above it.

ID Small oil leak

Finally had my coolant lines fixed and double checking I have no leaks anywhere. All seems good except for a very minor oil leak (1 drop in 4 days) in the circled area in the photo. Anyone know what...

The setup is so important on fully adjustable suspension that it's hard to judge. That's the main reason I went with V1's. I let the experts figure it out; all I had to do was set to the desired...

On my daily vehicles, they don't seem to last that long. On my bikes and turbo, I use a battery tender every time I'm not riding or driving and it easily doubles the lifespan.

I researched suspension to death and ended up asking advice from our good friend SamboTT on here.

I actually just put an Interstate in my VW. Also heard decent reviews on Optima batteries but doesn't look like they make one for the TT.

I think a mild tune would make no real difference, except for the clutch wearing a bit faster if you push it a lot. In stock form, it feels like this engine is barely working to produce the power it...

Battery: OE or aftermarket?

Just wondering what's a good replacement these days? Granted I use a battery tender but my battery is well over 6 years old, so I may be pushing my luck :)

'02 TT btw.

All fixed in the meantime! About $300; mainly labor.

Also had the fluid in the front diff and transmission changed. And oil+filter while it was on the lift. All ready to roll again :)

Yea, the coolant lines may be totally fine; it's just always in the back of my head. Now that my daughter enjoys sitting in the back, it'd be nice to take a few longer trips without worry.

What is the slave conversion about? The clutch slave cylinder was replaced at 60k mi, so probably good there.

How common is a water pump failure?

What other work/maintenance have you guys done to your car while the engine was out? Just in case I do the coolant lines. Clutch seems the obvious one but I won't need a clutch for a very long...

Yea, I believe it's the axle shaft seals and there are two of them for the rear. $27/each orso.

That explains why it was mainly dripping when the engine was hot; oil is much thicker than engine...
