Another leak in the V8

      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.

      '85 Cheby Celebrity (uncle comes back Sunday)

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