Check of level of oil

At check of level of oil щуп (1) it is taken out from a directing tube. Level of oil should be between marks or in the field of a corrugated surface (arrow) on a tip щупа. The amount of added oil between markings makes 1 l. Measurement can be exact only if the car costs on a horizontal surface.

Continuous control

If you just got the Audi A4 (new or second-hand), should for the sake of safety at each filling of a fuel tank undertake for щуп for measurement of level of oil. When you learn that your engine spends very few oil, checks can be carried out between the second and fourth filling.


  1. According to Audi instructions control of level of oil should be carried out at temperature of the engine of 60 °C that there correspond about 10 mines after start of the cold engine.
  2. To put the car on a horizontal surface.
  3. After switching off previously the heated-up engine to wait for at least five minutes in order that all oil flew down in a case.
  4. Be careful with the hot engine, it is possible to burn a hand about located round a detail.
  5. Take out щуп, 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 want to keep the exact magazine about a consumption of oil your Audi A4, you should make measurements always in one place and at the same temperature of oil.

In itself black color of oil is not a signal to replacement motor oils. Oil again darkens even soon after replacement. Dropping-out dirt and products of an istiraniye remain in a suspension in order that they did not get in the engine.

Having added oils

The difference between the bottom and top marking on щупе for measurement of level of oil makes 1 l. Level of oil should not fall below the bottom mark. The lack of a quarter of liter of oil is yet dangerous, but if there is no bigger amount of oil and by Audi A4 go in a sharp manner, on turns pressure of oil can fall to dangerous level.

Excess of oil in the engine is harmful also. At high turns it can get through a ventilating opening in the case case to combustion chambers. Excess of oil as is dangerous to the catalytic converter, as well as not burned down gasoline. Consequence: it can melt. But at a normal consumption of oil it is harmless.

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

 Council: Oil in a small amount is more expensive, than in 3-, 4-or 5-liter canisters. On the way such packing is inconvenient for oil addition more often. Besides, it takes a lot of place in a luggage carrier. 1-one-liter jar of engine oil with a screwing-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 producers, including one-target and multi-purpose oils. This miscibility without harmful consequences is the main requirement of the international standards of oils. Though mixing with other engine oil can affect specific properties of a certain oil as each brand 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 Audi firm on oils, danger of damage of the engine because of improper oil does not threaten.
