There were one or two V8Q'ers who had a similar leak, probably
in the archives somewhere, but had something to do with an
O-ring behind the right bank of the engine, I think.
The Pentosin one is the only one that sounds really
expen$ive. I changed the high pressure hose on my
car 18 months ago, and the damn thing is leaking
again. Dealer says only 1 year warranty on hose,
Audi hasn't gotten back to me yet. I guess
it's not normal to expect a hose that's less than
one foot long and costs $280 US to last more than
a year and a half.

... To know the road ahead, ask those coming back.
