      Hmmm, that has the facelift front grill and headlights. It's not a 2004.

      Just a quick update. My odor issue has vanished. Perhaps the over-filled oil sump was the culprit or the return to less cold temperatures did the trick?

      I usually top off the oil once in 10,000...

      No, but I need to do it for the right bank. Just the plastic wrapping covering the wires and the clips that release the wiring from the coils. All four clips on the coils were damaged 5 or more years...

      Thanks Michael.

      I just wiped more oil off the back of the motor along the valve cover gasket seam. The oil dipstick shows 1/4 inch over fill when cold. I notice the oil smell less frequently now,...

      My oil leak appears to have sealed itself. The burning oil smell in the cabin and smoke rising from the right exhaust manifold has ceased or at least has subsided a lot. I'm beginning to think the...

      One dealer quoted me (in person) about a thousand and said the intake manifold had to come off. I don't think so.

      A second dealer quoted me $530.00. That over-the-phone quote was for 3.3 hours...

      Too bad I just had the spark plugs replaced because it appears fussing around with the spark plug/coil pack wiring is part of the work needed to replace the valve cover gaskets.

      I would like to...

      Hi all,

      I searched valve cover gasket leaks to find this thread and the Blauparts video on replacing the gaskets.
      It certainly appears my 4.2 V8 Phaeton with 131,000 miles has leaky gaskets. I'm...

      I would love to have the CD player as mine has gobbled up 6 CD'd and refuses to give them back!
      I'm also relatively unemployed! Real estate market is still bad.

      I have a set of little used headlight buckets with good lenses. The ones on my P are 130,000 miles used and very pitted.

      I heard the clear lenses can be removed from their black "bucket" if they...

      I squeeze in between a workbench and the DeLorean.:) The D's doors open straight up, so I can park the Phaeton pretty close to that and the Phaeton's driver door just clears the workbench.

      I love the button retro.

      You know, I've been Jones-ing for a Bentley-like grab handle for the driver's door. Have you considered fitting a RHD (English) door pull?
