Oil Leak

While stopping for coffee this morning I noticed a little smoke coming out of the passenger side, highlighted by the headlights. The smoke smelled of burning oil.

Opened up the hood and immediately noticed oil around the back spark plug. Looks like oil is accumulating and dripping on the manifold. I've attached a photo of the oil leak.

Any idea where the leak might be coming from? Is this a know issue with the V6? Would like a good idea of what's going on before visiting the dealer. 2015 4X4 Limited 3.6L with 6,000 miles.

Thank you for you help.

Re: Oil Leak

I do not recall reading about anything similar on this forum. Either way a trip to the dealer ASAP is in order.

Re: Oil Leak

Dealer found a oil leak around the passenger side valve cover & spark tube gasket. Advisor said he's never seen anything like it on a new car. Anyone experience something similar with their WK2?

Issue #1 - A/C undercharged from factory

Issue #2 - Air suspension valve leak

Issue #3 - Vacuum hose leak

Issue #4 - Oil leak

Third time I'm without my GC for a week.
