Jetta 2.0 for 96

Asked by Jan 29, 2017 at 07:54 PM about the 1996 Volkswagen Jetta 4 Dr GLS Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Jetta won't stop leaking oil really bad and it
looks like it comes from the filter or housing for
the filter and I changed filter but it is just as bad as
before. And is this common for these models?

How bad? If it just pours out, check to see if there is another filter O- ring on the block side. The last time the oil was changed, it might have been left on.

I don't know where the leak is coming from but the night before I lost all oil I was at the mall and noticed a thunking when I was looking for parking. Almost sounded like a busted shock? It seemed to be at the rear but only going slow but I jumped a curb a week before and bottomed out. But the oil level stayed up for a week after the curb and I made sure to check before driving it so the oil pan isn't the source cuz oil level was okay until a week later and I didn't bottom it out after the curb. I have to do repairs myself . One broke girl armed with a haynes, limited resources to do repairs and the wisdom from Y'all fine folks. I don't want to cause more problems in my attempt to fix this one. Thanks and I appreciate the insight and guidance for all my issues. 1st site I hit if a question needs a honest answer!
