2001 Volkswagen Cabrio Q&A

2001 Volkswagen Cabrio Question: What could be the cause of oil dumping to the ground at 1 GPM while engin is run

I can not see where the leak is comming from. It looks like it is near the oil filter. Only leaks when engin is running. -
Answer 1
Might be the filter! Also the oil pressure switch but it will have to be looked at. -
Comment 1
The filter was changed and the leak is still there. Is the pressure switch located above the filter connection? -
Comment 2
Not sure on this engine but most are!! -
Comment 3
Looked a little closer. appears to be leaking at the flange beween the cast and the filter's thin metal adapter box -
Comment 4
Ok, there is a o-ring seal OR a gasket between the adapter and engine block. It is a little more than the avg. diy'er needs to attempt. -
