My 90 90Q 20V is smoking like the James Bond trick for loosing pursuers.
Looks like valve seals are gone and a variable amount of oil gets burned
when the engine has been idling for a seconds. It's my wife's car and she
has now taken over my S6 until I either get her a new car or fix it. In
every other way this car, 175k km is working like a charm and the finish is
What choices do I have?
1) Replace the head with a remanufactured one? If so, where do you get one?
2) Find a competent shop to rebuild the head? What warranty would I need?
Is this only something a VW or Audi dealer should be trusted with?
3) Do it myself (scary thought). I have time this summer and an Alfa Romeo
Spider to get me places (when it's dry)
4) Bail now and sell it at night?
Any suggestions welcome.
