Just had this done today. They replaced the upper timing chain cover gasket and some other gasket/seal. All paid for by my extended warranty. Yay.

I discovered mine was leaking while I was getting the timing chain tensioner replaced as a precaution on my 2010 with 70k which i just bought. Brought the car back to the dealer to have it replaced under the one month warranty and they sent it to the local VW dealership to be looked at. They called me later to say that it's to be expected with a car of that mileage and there's nothing they are going to do about it.

Just had the valve cover gasket (or sealant) replaced at my dealer. I have 50k miles but the car is CPO until 57k miles. They gave me no trouble at all with fixing it under warranty.

I had my valve cover resealed about 2 months ago with 32k miles under warranty, if the dealership is cool and you have a good relationship with them they will do it out of warranty in my experience.

Has this worked with people who has had the oily water pooling on top?

I am going to tightening the 5 side bolts (or at least the ones that are accessible to me) to see if this helps.

first post so here goes

i have a 2010 jetta wolfsberg and after reading this entire thread i noticed my valve cover has oil residue in all the places discussed here. (around front cover seal and crank sensor)

so my question is this i have a CPO warranty for roughly 1500 more miles should i take this in eat the deductible and hopefully get a new seal and sensor?
compounding my concern is the fact that my car did have a PCV failure about a year ago. (entire unit was replaced)

for reference bone stock engine.

thanks guys.

I didn't tighten the 5 side bolts, but I stopped getting this issue.

I replaced my PCV and the day after, I had that oily water, but after that, it's dry. Strange.

Also reduced my oil consumption to around... well, nothing. Used to burn around 1 quart per 8000 km, then got really bad this winter when it was 1 quart per 1000 km (). Now it's probably going to burn around half a quart per 8000 km by the looks of it, which is pretty good in my opinion.

I have this leak. I've been waiting though. I noticed some oil on my spark plugs and coil in cyl 2 and tiny bit in 3 IIRC. I have an extended warranty. But I don't wana open up a can of worms pulling shit apart. I also should probably get a carbon cleaning. I'm at around 65k and never had one done.

It appears as though every pic previously posted looks exactly like what I see under my hood. I have a stock 2012 with 72k miles. Timing chain tensioner and intake manifold both failed and were replaced under CPO warranty at 50k. While everything was opened up, I also had the dealership clean the valves. No noises coming from the PCV, but leaks are evident.

There may have been some oil coming from the fill cover, so I cleaned that off well. There has not been any major leakage for the past 500 miles.

I was thinking about replacing the PCV valve and the o-ring on the sensor on my own and then watching things for a bit But based on the pics below, should I just have the dealership replace the valve cover gasket since they will have to take off the PCV valve anyway?
