My turbo s was leaking some oil. Where can I get one for my car and is it called a oil return line?





Also does anyone know what that weird red/orange stuff is from the bottom area of the pic?

The oil return line; is available from your local Volkswagen dealer parts dept or you could order it online from Volkswagen dealers parts places that have websites; such as VW Parts | Volkswagen Parts

Seeing; how the return line, is about $100 or so, getting it repaired might be worth it (make sure you replace the two gaskets that go with is as well)!

06A-145-735-AA RETURN LINE

Some of these hoses can be particularly expensive; it is possible, to have a hose like this repaired as a local hydraulics hose shop; so, that might be a option as well.

The crusty red stuff; is residue from a coolant leak, check the area and replace whatever parts are leaking, you might do a cooling system pressure test to pinpoint the leak.

coolant leak

and looks like you also have a coolant leak on that third picture from the top. That's why it's always a good practice to look the underside over everytime you change the oil for anything out of the Normal, I do.Helps to catch problems before they become a real problem.
