Hallo.
Sorry about the language. I am from Denmark, no qualified help to get on Danish forums.

Car- Audi A4 Avant. 2003 1.9 tdi 130 hp. AVF

I have a oil leak. And it's driving me crazy.

Just changed the valve cover gasket. And cable loom.

I thought I maybe came from a bad head gasket. But no.

It comes out on the bottoms bolt on the exhaust manifold. I off cause cleaned it very good.
Then I drive a few miles and I can see it on the bolt.
What can it be??

I am 100 % sure its not from the VCG.

I uploaded a picture, sorry about the quality.
It's hard to cut the picture down to 1 mb

Please help.

Best regards
Michael

Does your car has EGR?
EGR cooler leak could cause a tiny amount of oil to weep out. However the other giveaway would be black soot in the engine firewall area and depending on the level of the leak reduced turbo performance...

It has EGR.
I changed the valve cover gasket, and also cable loom it had a small leak.

No leaks from egr.

Like I see it. There are only in and outlet one that side of the engine. And the leak must either way come from one of those?

There is pressure, don't know if it's to much. When I lift the oil filler cap. But breather works.
