    Value Cover Gaskets and camshaft issues as discussed. Local Audi deal wanted 2x what the German specialty mechanic wanted. Very frustrating for such a known problem.

    My wife's A6 has smeeled like it was burning oil forever. I took it to 4 dealerships while under warranty and they all said it was in the oil pan and it was not a problem. After the warranty expired, then it becvame a gasket leak and could be replaced for big bucks.
