Garage for Checking oil leak for VW Tiguan

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

Need Help

I have an engine oil leak on my VW Tiguan engine compartment. I took it to Autopro and they said they need to lift the engine and see the issue. 

I dont want to take it to VW service centre because my warranty and service contract is over and they will definitely rip my wallet for diagnosing this issue.

Can you recommend any good workshop that i can take it to?

I have attached some pics . Hope it is helpful.

No need to lift the engine. Tell the garage to use UV dye and they’ll find the leak in under a minute.

In theory yes, but the fact that they haven’t done it already means they probably don’t know what it is. 

You can get small bottles of uv leak detector dye, they aren’t expensive. Pour it into the engine, start the engine and shine a uv torch onto the area where the leak is. The point of leakage will glow bright green

I'm an old dog and I love new tricks.

Will remember that one.
