Replacement of engine oil and oil filter

Carving stopper of a masloslivny opening (3) – in the photo the six-cylinder engine is shown – becomes the bottom facing of an impellent compartment available after dismantle. For its unscrewing by the most suitable tool the cap key is. The oil filter (1) is best of all for unscrewing a tape key (on an arrow). Further in the photo are shown an oil radiator on which cooling liquid (2) flows.


  1. Change oil only at the warm engine! Therefore, whenever possible, do a bit of traveling on the car.
  2. Raise Audi A4 horizontally (put an emphasis!) or establish it on a ramp.
  3. Dismantle the bottom cover of an impellent compartment.
  4. Put under an engine case suitable capacity.
  5. Unscrew a cap key a carving stopper of a drain opening; let's flow down to oil. Be careful, it is hotter.
  6. If you raised the car only in front to merge the fulfilled oil completely, it needs to be merged once again. Track thus not to damage or to overturn reception capacity.
  7. Put reception capacity under the oil filter.
  8. Weaken the oil filter a tape key. If the filter sits very strongly, pierce its metal case a sharp screw-driver (be careful, hot oil follows) and unscrew the filter by means of a screw-driver.
  9. Slightly grease with componental greasing a sealing ring of the new oil filter.
  10. Do not use for this purpose lubricant oil as at visual survey it wrongly can be accepted for following engine oil.
  11. Strong screw up the filter manually, without using any tools.
  12. To Ototrita clean a screw stopper of a drain opening also screw up with a new sealing ring; but it is not too strong, differently damage directing carving on a case.
  13. Fill in oil (see the table).
  14. Get the engine, check tightness of oil.
