The EGR valve is leaking oil, and there is really a mess on top of the engine, and below the EGR valve (there is more than you actualy see on the pictures).

So I guees the only option is to replace it ?

Anyone have a clue on the price of the egr valve ? It's on a 2001 VW passat 1.9TDi (AVF engine).

The car is a bit sluggish in acceleration below 2500 rpm sometimes (but not always). May this oil leak have something to do with it ?
