'99 2.8 a6 AHA Catastrophic Oil Leak

Hey Guys, Our beloved a6 avant, the one that we thought would live forever, just suffered a major aneurysm. With 340k km she was still going strong, but no longer. Yesterday morning was fairly cold, -10c, I started her up and left her running to warm up. Ten minutes later my wife heard a knocking noise and noticed a large pool of oil on the ground and shut her off. I jacked her up, pulled the belly pan and had a good look. I couldn't see anything obvious so I suspected that maybe the oil cooler gasket had blown out. I loosened the oil cooler and had a look. The nut wasn't very tight so I thought maybe that's it. Being in the 'sticks' I had no parts but did have some red silicon gasket maker. So I applied some silicon on the rubber gasket and put it back together. I managed to find five litres of oil and put it in and started her up. A heavy stream of oil, maybe the thickness of my little finger, was pouring out. And the engine had some noticeable knocks. So I'm pretty sure she's done for... but where could the leak be coming from? Perhaps the oil pressure sender has ruptured... or could there be an oil galley plug that's popped out of the block?
This doesn't seem to be a common problem; has anyone any ideas? Thanks /PL

I do not comprehend it all, but a lot of it has to do with the detail. It is about miles within the outer lining area, there is a large quantity of stress, too much for plusieurs to go down and the device has to be properly reduced to the right identify as said at Coursework Writing Services . They will ultimately deliver tangible down, but they have to connect it first with mud before they put the tangible in.
