Re: quattro-digest V1 #698
Yes, from what you said, I would most definitely tell you to put that bolt back in and tourque it
I removed the non-functional AC from my '82 Coupe, and the next day I had oil everywhere under my
engine. I also noticed that I was using *way* too much oil. After revving the engine and seeing oil
seep out of the seal where to bolt hole was, I realized I needed to replace the bolt. After I did
that, all was well, and I don't leak any oil now.
Now, too bad the oil burning can't be fixed the same way too....
