Hello fello GTI guys!
I'm new but I've been watching this forum for awhile.

Anyways, I have a concern:
I've been noticing oil in some strange places around my engine. I have a 06 GTI FSI. Here are some pics:

There was a small pool of oil in this center hole. All around the bolt. The bold seemed snug but I was able to tighten it a bit more and haven't noticed any new oil.


Also here:




I appreciate any feed back if anyone knows what is going on with this.

Thanks!
Josh

Change the valve cover gasket then clean the engine bay and see what happens a few hundred miles later.

How big of a job is it to change the valve cover gasket on these cars?

Thanks for the reply BTW.

Usually takes 30 mins at most. Basic tool set should get the job done.
