    Hi all and happy new year. I've been noticing that my V6 is drinking a lot of oil. It seems like I'm always throwing in a quart or so every time I check it. I've noticed this ever since I've been doing my own oil changes (instead of the VW dealership doing it) and after VW fixed my cam chain...

    I cant find any hose leaks or drips, and its not going into the oil. Over 300 miles/ 25 days the coolant drops from the Max mark to the Min mark. Any ideas?
