Question about 2003 Audi A6
I recently purchased the 2003 Audi A6 3.0 FWD with 93k on it. I noticed a light brown color oil mixture on the bottom of the oil cap when I removed it. The engine sounds quiet, drives very smooth, and there's nothing coming from the exhaust. I've been told this may be a bad gasket in the engine. Could it be possible that it's just condensation that may have gotten under the oil cap that mixed with the oil to cause the light brownish material. Wouldn't I see more signs if it were an engine problem? At least I hope!
Most likely is condensation in the oil because if you changed your oil and your head was bad you would see it in the oil going into the container. i would not be to concerned .with problem

Drive it for about 20 minutes. Shut off the engine and check your oil. If the oil is dirty, clear brown or blackish, it's doing it's job. If it looks like chocolate milk, you have a leakage problem.
