V8 owners take note

   I was reading through the archievs, and noticed that all the V8 owners
complain of
"smoking" cars.  The smoke is coming from under the hood I assume.  I have a
'90 V8 with 66,000 or so miles on it.  Mine smoked once, or so the neighbors
said, and I thought it was from a long trip, also a fast one.   After this it
smelled.  I was fortunate that the car was going in for service in a week to
have the timing belt changed. ( The dealer insisted that it be changed at
60,000 miles. or I'd be risking damage. The only service I have had to pay
for on this Audi. I've had it 4 years.)  

  Both return hoses were leaking behind the air filter housing on the back
the engine.  Hard to describe, but mine hasn't leaked since. 

  This car has been fantastic.  I have had no other problems other than the
cruise controll doesn't work. 

Hope this can be of help, if confused ask and I'll explaine better, and llok
up parts.
