My 1997 A6 Quattro has developed an oil leak that seems to be located somewhere under the intake manifold. It drips down onto the exhaust! There is no water in the oil, nor oil in the cooling system. The oil temp is low. Any ideas where to look?

Try getting the engine pressure washed and drive it for a week or two. Then inspect the engine. You'll get a much better idea as to where the oil is coming from. Early candidates??? valve cover gasket or even head gasket.

Good luck.
