I had the same problem on an '87 4000CSQ. It was collapsed lifters. Didn't
affect performance and I was told not a big deal to drive on, but not right.
It happened more than once as well. The final time at (105,000 miles) the
regional Audi rep signed off on all the repairs - and it never did it again.
I wish I knew why!
