Hi I have an a4 avant 2.0 tdi s line and I noticed oil around where the head sits on the rest of the engine (under the intake manifold) but not on the intake, is there any other thing it could be other than the head leaking? I have checked the oil but it isn't dropping.

Could be Oil leaking from turbo (which happens with most of them) into the intake which is causing it to leak out of the intake manifold and appear there, if you aren't loosing oil, the oil filler cap isn't milky and it isn't smoking I wouldn't worry about it too much for now!

Or could be where it is so coked up in the intake from the EGR valve, because Coke is basically turbo oil and soot mixed together. It could just be the cokey oily mess seeping out of your intake somewhere.

i think it's the head as you can just leak from the side of the block, and without removing the inlet I cannot see what else it could be.

I thought I'd post a query on here to see if anyone else had the same problem etc
