I finaly got around to fixing that annoying oil leak ive had since i bought the car. This was the first matinence work ive done since getting the Audi. The Valve cover gasket really is easy and requires very few tools. The seafoam was a little tricky but that was only because i did it by myself, both were very easy and would recomend them to anyone. heres some pics.

All the parts, thank you ECS

The teardown looks harder than it really is.

How hard was that to do?

Becuase that looks like a worthwhile matintence operation while I have my block open.

Mickey's is the best, no Schmirnoff here.

It could just be the angle the pic is taken at, but your coolant looks to be fairly low. Might want to check that out.

Is it essentially the same tear down on the 2.8? I have bad valve gaskets and am looking to replace them once the warmer weather comes.

I have no clue about the 2.8 my guess it would be harder, but i dont know. Dont worry guys I topped off the coolant right after i got done changing my oil.
