    Thanks. It was a bad seal on one of the camshafts. I have a quote of $400 to have it fixed. Does that seem too much?

Could be a bad seal on one of the camshafts. could also be from the valve cover. You need to wash the engine down carefully -don't get the wires wet and look closely for the oil path. is it engine oil or transmission fluid?

How do i change the sump on my audi a6 2.8 quattro


Remove the large plastic body panel under the engine, if it is still there. The oil pan is about 14in x 12in square with a round sensor in the middle. Drain the oil, disconnect wires, remove all 20 or so bolts. Clean gaskek surface and silicon new gasket in place. replace the bolts, but only hand tight. Let the silicone set for 2 hours, and then tichten to factory spec, about 15in/lbs

1998 AUD1 A6 ENGINE OIL LEAK the engine is leakking so can these effect the gear box?


As long as it is engine oil, you should be OK. Are you using synthetic Oil? Sometimes switching over to synthetic oil will cause very minor leaks to become more active. If so, you may be better off switching to regular oil, and changing more frequently. Also be sure to use the highest viscosity oil designed for you model.

Be sure that you can figure out where exactly the leak is coming from. Upper engine/ lower engine?

How much oil are you losing?

Your gearbox should be OK.
