    So I noticed today that I had some oil type substance running up my hood. I just washed the Jetta this weekend so this appeared within the last few days

    I checked all areas under the hood and could find no obvious source, or even any more. Could this have come off another vehicle on the highway? Suspicious. I did notice a small cut in the forward intercooler outlet connecting hose. possible source?

    thx

    Pull the lower charge hose to see if any oil is in it.

    It was the cut in the intercooler outlet hose. A visit to IDparts fixed her up. Although the hose clamps are a pain without proper tools.
