03 Passat GLX 2.8 B5.5


Hunting for an oil leak not a fun process. We found after tearing down engine it was the rear cam seal.
we replaced all the seals and the head gaskets. changed all plugs,ect. 3 months later the rear seal is leaking again.
Every 5000 miles oil and filter and plug and ring are changed. Only use VW filters and oil. Oil is clean every change
Is this a common problem.
Thank you for any and all info.

did you put some sealant on the rear cam seals when you replaced them? are you sure the leak is from the rear cam seals? there are also cam chain tensioner seals on back left (when viewed from the front of the car, looking into the engine bay) and front right of the 2.8 motor.
