This is a very common problem with 98-99 a6. It's the valve cover gasket and/or camshaft seal. The valve cover gaskets are easy to replace but the camshaft seals are very difficult and require a lot of work( you pretty much have to take apart the top half of the motor). I have owned about 8 audis and almost all of them leaked oil. Unless it consumes a lot of oil in a short period of time your better off just checking the oil every week or so and topping it off because this is a VERY costly repair.

98 a6 quattro, leaks oil, the car's been in the shop 4 times for this issue(in 2 years time frame), the lower pan gasket has been replaced twice as well as the oil cap. last time i had the audi service check it out i have been told they need to take the whole engine apart= huge bill. i see i am not the only one having the "hard to fix" oil leak.  view
