    More than likely it is the crankcase ventilation hose at the very back of the engine. My 1999 4.2L Quattro had this problem and basically, over time , the hose dries and cracks, and small amounts of oil drip down on to the exhaust manifold. Part # for 1999 was 077-103-221-K or AB 024 F01 VENTHOSE
