re:Oil leak \ cold temperatures
I don't think the cold contraction was the cause. I've never seen that
behavior on any of my Aud!s or VWs. (its was -38C a couple of nights
ago, and -30C seemingly forever!!)
93 Aud! S4 - no leaks
& formerly: 78 5000; 75 Fox; 86Jetta; 91 Passat that didn't leak

Subject: Oil leak \ cold temperatures
Greetings from coooolllld Colorado (well for us anyway).
Started up the beauty this morning, being the coldest day of
(-15F) so far , and noticed oil leaking out of what seemed to be
metal housing above the oil filter. Couldn't locate the exact
as I was on my way to the Grindstone.
The leak did stop about a minute after she fired up (aprox 50ml
spilt). I reckon it has something to do with expansion of metals
to extreme cold, 157k on the clock, age of car bla bla bla .....
Any comments ?.
