Update: Well, I found the cause of the manifold leak. Yup, lost two exhaust studs somewhere on the road. Ha, some yuppy in a Cayman is probably getting them pulled out of his right-front Pirelli right now. Anyway, after some serious wrenching and a new set of gaskets, I've got it all back together and running smooth.

White Jetta Blues
The white Jetta has sprung a manifold leak. This, being an automatic Jetta, will necessitate the removal of the right drive-shaft and starter in addition to the removal of the intake manifold in order to get at the exhaust manifold and said leak. Awesome.
