I need to call out to the wealth of knowledge on this forum for help. I have cracked injectors on my V10 and I would like to know if anyone has seen this before???

Never seen anything like that on any PD VAG engine.

Has the car had work done before?

- camshaft?
- injector?
- cylinder head?

My gut says the injector was changed in the past and the lash was set incorrectly.

All vw/audi engines must use 507.00 spec oil except non-DPF R5/V10 engines that must use 505.01/506.01
