2010 A6, 3.0T -...

2010 A6, 3.0T - 129,000 leaking valve gasket that has been fixed twice in the last 90 days. I'm being told the oil leak has damaged the Alternator, pressure regulator, so they need replacing

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you ever replaced the gaskets? Maybe the hoses?

Twice in the last 90 days, most recent was last week

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your A6 yourself? What have you tried so far?

No, Alex Autohaus in Salt Lake

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

In addition to the afore mentioned repairs and parts, they sayCoolant Cross over pipes and hoses and other coolant hoses need to be replaced. Tab for all the above is brutal
