    Hello all, After spending a few hours getting all my tinwear off I've finally found the culprit off my oil leak! Next is figuring out how to fix it. I think a new gasket will do the job but want your opinions. Also, don't know the name of what I am looking for. https://i.imgur.com/GLXdcgA.jpg...

    I had to drive 125 miles a couple of days ago. I stopped once along the way and was travelling about 70-80km/hr. About 1 or 2 miles from home the red G light started flashing. I pulled over and checked if the belt had come off and it hadn't so made my way home, as I pulled in it came back on...

    So I finally decided to pull the engine out for the first time in an attempt to stop the oil leaks from my 1972 Beetle. I knew that I had a leaking crankcase seal for sure but after inspecting it all I also have a leak from the base of one of the barrels where it slots into the case. I can see...

    Hi all, thanks for your time. At the weekend, I noticed a puddle of oil under my van which I assumed was mine (although if so, it has not leaked since). However, on looking at the engine, there is oil around the top of the engine and I was hoping someone might be able to point me towards a...

    Hi folks! I was investigating a minor oil leak last weekend and found that it was coming from where the engine meets the gearbox so pulled out he engine and this is how it looked like: So its nice and oily all around with a little puddle on the bottom. The clutch doesn`t slip tho. So is...

    Right, I've been under my car trying to find the source of any oil leaks as it seems to be losing oil quite quickly these days. So I cleaned off all the oil everywhere that I could, warmed the car up and waited for it to start leaking so that I could identify where the problem was. I was...

    Hi guys, I have a leak that is getting worse, it seems to be coming out around the area of where the oil light cable is, or around that general area, it it then leaking down and sitting in the tinware and falls down and sits just beneath the fan belt also. Now I'm really wanting to go to...

    Hi all! Although being relatively mechanically competent I am new to Bugs, and mine is certainly causing me a few headaches! After owning the Bug for a month or two now I've noticed recently the car shakes a lot idling, there is knockings from the engine bay and the bugs down on power...

    Previous advice was spot on thankyou. :) Bit more help needed if anyone can oblige. We took the engine out of our type 2 and the oil leak was due the crankshaft oil seal. Replaced this with a new one and put engine back in. Took him for a short run and we have oil dripping from left side which...

    After a long journey when we park up the camper loses about half a liter of oil into a puddle.. It looks like its coming from the middle bottom of the engine. It has also more recently been getting oil onto the clutch. Any help is appreciated, we don't know where to start :confused:

    Hi Guys and Gals, Wondering if anyone has had the same issue as me. When I reverse up a slope (like the one leading to my house/garage) I get a loud clonking sound as it moves backwards, even if i take it really gently it still does it, however when reversing on a flat or downhill it's not...

    I've just had a 1641 engine put in my beetle and oil is spraying out my air filter. How do I stop this? I was hoping putting a complete engine in would limit the problems, guess not.

    Set off earlier for our trip to the Lakes in our 72 Bay. However, once we hit 50ish MPH huge clouds of blue smoke started blowing out of the back. Pulled over and looked in the engine bay and there was oil all over. Predominantly on the left hand side of our stock 1600. Was even on the back wall...
