Technical characteristics

Check of level of oil

At check of level of oil probe (1) it is taken out from a directing tube. Oil level should be between marks or in the field of a corrugated surface (arrow) on a tip probeа. The quantity of added oil between marks makes 1 l. Measurement can be exact only in the event that the car costs on a horizontal surface.

The constant control

If you Audi A4 have just got the (new or second-hand) should for the sake of safety at each refuelling of a fuel tank undertake for probe for measurement of level of oil. When you learn that your engine spends not enough oil checks can be spent between the second and fourth refuelling.


  1. According to instructions Audi the control of level of oil should be carried out at temperature of the engine 60 С that there correspond approximately 10 mines after start of the cold engine.
  2. To put the car on a horizontal surface.
  3. After deenergizing of preliminary heated-up engine to wait a minimum five minutes that all oil has flown down in картер.
  4. Be cautious with the hot engine, it is possible to burn a hand about located round a detail.
  5. Take out probe, wipe its pure, not a fleecy rag or a paper napkin, again enter against the stop, wait a little and again take out.
  6. On a core you can see oil level.
  7. If level of lubricant means reaches only the bottom point engine oil needs to be added.

 Council: If you wish to conduct exact magazine about the expense of oil yours Audi A4 you should make measurements always in one place and at the same temperature of oil.

In itself black colour of oil is not a signal to replacement motor oils. Oil again darkens even soon after replacement. The dropping out dirt and products истирания remain in a suspension that they have not got in the engine.

Having added oils

The difference between the bottom and top marks on probeе for measurement of level of oil makes 1 l. Oil level should not fall below the bottom mark. The lack of a quarter of litre of oil is yet dangerous, but if does not suffice большего quantity of oil and on Audi A4 go in a sharp manner on turns pressure of oil can fall to dangerous level.

Surplus of oil in the engine is harmful also. At high turns it can get through a ventilating aperture in the case картера to combustion chambers. For каталитического the converter surplus of oil as is dangerous, as well as not burnt down gasoline. A consequence: it can fuse. But at the normal expense of oil it is harmless.

Result: oil is recommended to be added, when its level is in the bottom quarter between two labels probeа. Do not pour oil above the top label.

 Council: Oil in a small amount costs more expensively, than in 3, 4 or 5-litre canisters. On the journey such packing is inconvenient for oil addition more often. Besides, it takes a lot of place in a luggage carrier. The 1-one-litre jar of engine oil with a screwed up cover from which you necessarily can add oil in the small portions is convenient.

Whether it is possible to mix oils?

It is possible to mix bravely all grades of oils of any manufacturers, including one-target and multi-purpose oils. This miscibility without harmful consequences is the basic requirement of the international standards of oils. Though mixing with other engine oil can affect specific properties of certain oil as each mark of oil possesses an own combination of additives slightly. But the lubricant effect is never endangered. To the one who adheres to the standards recommended by firm Audi on oils, danger of damage of the engine because of improper oil does not threaten.
