i seem to be losing oil, about 1/4 the dip stick every 2K
turbo is clean.
oil filter/cooler is clean
front of the block is clean
cam seal looks like its starting to weep a bit (so going to replace the gasket on that)
every now and again i get a smell of oil, i can't see any burns marks on the downpipe/exhaust
i know the sump has a 1/2mm crack by the bung. (not big enought to drip oil onto the floor) going to replace the sump and pick up pipe when funds allow (been like this since jan last year, hasn't really caused a problem)
the oil cap seems to be leaking as im getting the ring around the filler cap full of oil, is this a thing on the a3 that the filler cap leaks if so whats the fix, replace the seal (if possible?) or just replace the filler cap
is there any common places to look for on the a3 ?
thanks for any info
