please please can someone help me asap

Kind Regards Stefan

Ps i forgot to mention my car is an Audi 80 16v Avant 1993

Sounds like your o-ring could have perished, or the filter has come loose. Do you know when the oil & filter were last changed?
AFAIK there should be no bolts to hold it on, it should just screw into position. For the sake of £15's worth of parts though, it might be an idea to change the oil and the filter.
Cheers,
Tom

i had exactly the same symptons a couple of years ago--at first i thought it was the o ring between the oil cooler(the filter is screwed onto this-dont look much like an oil cooler tho)and the block-- it wasnt this o ring at all -the oil temperature switch was leaking thru the top where the blue/white wire goes thru it!!!!!!!!its covered by a rubber boot so you cant see it leaking
