[200q20v] Audi leaking petosin, not the Jeep!

Oil all over the reservoir sounds like the famous Pentosin Volcano, which 
normally results from the pump sucking air somewhere.  Usually it means the 
internal seals (a bunch of O Rings) have grown hard with age/heat, etc., 
and no longer provide complete sealing.  You can buy a kit to reseal the 
pump (procedure is described pretty well in the Bentley for your car) or 
replace with a pump someone else resealed.  The latter costs ~ ten times 
the former.
