My friend Bill and I looked at the Dipstick area where oil seemed to be smoking and then condensing. We pulled the dipsticks "O" ring off and replaced it . I got a pkg of ten various sizes from Advance Auto. This seems to have stopped it.. I'll let you know .. "Gordy"...Oh yeah, A Woman at a VW dealer had mentioned this to me quite sometime ago .. I didn't think it to have any merit.. I hope She was right.We'll see !!! Thanks again, ...................Dave..AKA Gordy !
