	i did not know that the filters themselves had the drainback valves in
them, its funny that you should mention oil changes because i just had one,
2500km's ago and it is still there. the reason this is funny ( weird) is
that I had it changed at an audi dealer, the very one the car was bought
at. I am still convinced to get to the bottom of this but thank you for
your suggestions, they are very much appreciated.
