I have a slow engine leak under my car as well, i've been reading i think i may have the same issue, i just need to jack up my car to see.

On that note is there a way to verify that u have a faulty PCV valve? My car hasn't thrown any codes and idle does not seem rough

The video I posted for you in your own thread explains this!

100% definitely replace the PCV plate at the same time, and be prepared for a new dual-mass flywheel while the car is apart as well. It's a >$500 part, but the labor is free because they have to remove the original flywheel as part of the job. New flywheel quieted down the idle (no more subtle rattle) and made the car shift better too. No more jerky 1-2 shifts.

Total bill for me was juuust under $2k but I had a couple other things done as well (oil change, inspection, etc), so prepare your wallet. Labor alone for this job is over $1000. Definitely find an independent shop rather than the dealer, indie shops that do VWs do this job allll the time on Tiguans especially. Super common failure on Tiguans.

Some shops will drop the subframe to get better access to the transmission which has to be completely removed, so that's also a good opportunity to have them put in something like the Tyrolsport Subframe Collars, again, free labor!
