Dreaded oil cooler "O" ring failure
Got a call from my 18 year old son this morning, on his way to work the audi was making a "funny" noise so he stopped and checked the oil and it was down after only 15 miles!
I took a tow rope, the wife and a recovery vehicle and went to town. When I arrived the car was down 1/2 qt.(son had added about 2qt) and so I started it to see if I could hear anything out of the ordinary. Sounded ok so I let it run wondering where the oil had gone... then I saw oil pouring out from around the oil filter tho the filter was secure. Am I right in suspecting the oil cooler O ring? How long does it take to change? Any tips? Sure hope there wasn't any internal damage tho the buzzer never sounded! Looks like I'll be in the garage this week.
