Re: Cold start problem - final chapter

Have you considered that your motor is burning oil?  It is typical
for audis over 100k to leak oil past their valve stem seals.

Bite your tongue!

Looking forward to using Mobil1 some time in the near future. First gotta
make sure all is well on the oil retention front. VC Gasket looks dry
lately. Maybe crank seal is losing a bit although it has been renewed. The
main indicator of heavy VC leakage is the fact that I am running soooo much
better now that it is tightened down. Will know a lot better in 1,000 miles
or so. (give me a week or 2).

Take care,
