I've been around as a reader for about the last nine-or-so
months..interesting information..interesting conversations!
I think it's finally my turn--I hear the audi gods callig me to the
alter to worship alongside the other audi brethren.
I bought a 93-90CSQ in february of this year. The car had 30k miles on
it and had been dealer maintained(univ. audi seattle). On the advise of
the list, I filled with mobile1(20-50)at 33.5k with a oem filter(always
used castrol gtx in the coupe). Since then it seems the car has been
eating a quart of mobile1 about every 2k miles. I've scouted around the
engine and cannot find any external leaks.
I'm not looking at starting the synthetic vs dino fued again(great
content, though!!) but i'd like to get a idea of what i'm going into
before I visit the local audi cash-flow specialist. It looks like
alldata has a technical bullittens on their cd regarding oil consumption
and leaks and I'd purchase it if I had a cdrom (hopefully soon!).
Can someone please enlighten me on possible causes or if this is just the
normal thing for these v6's or better yet, share the info. from the
technical bulliten with me.
BTW..my warranty ended right after i purchased the car--it's all
out-of-the-pocket fun from now on...
