Thanks for thre reply pal. I dont have any unsuaul smoke, but took it two garages and they both said that you got a oil leaking from your pipes or somthing like that. One said its kind of normal for a high reg gt tdi. Today, moved my car and noticed a a good amount of oil. Not a puddle but enough to notice.
Its put me right off and I want to get rid, but the car has some history.. Like clocked mileage from a previous owner!! Ive been offerd £1200.. I think its crazy for such a car. Its a 51 plate. Its got 140,000 on the clock, plus I wold say add another 20,000 for the clokced mileage.
Other than it drives and is in perfect condition. Inside and outside
Ok... May have got to the bottom of the leak. Not a gear box issue after all. I had my rocker cover changed (the rubber seal), as they said it was leaking. Since I had it change it has been sripping out oil, and this is where all the oil has been coming from. Now I took it back to them and they said they would have another look. They said they re-done the job, but the oil is leaking from the exact same spot where i saw it from last time. NOw they said they will strip it down again and have another look. Now he is saying that it maybe the casing that is carcked at the top which apparently cost something like £100. The point is it was leaking like this before I gave it to them.
Anyone point to a place where i can by this replacement cover from.
Wonder if you can clean that up and jb wield it. I'm pretty sure by the cover he means you need a whole new diff.
Otherwise you're paying for someone to disassemble and reassemble a new diff into a new shell. Which will cost more than a new diff.
