    hello all, The time has come to rid me of this nasty leak that has been costing me quarts of oil over the past few months. I've known about this leak and monitored it and it has most definitely gotten worse. I've bought the Filter Housing Gasket and a new Vanos Oil Line (because why not). I'm...
