Correctly picked up engine oil for Audi

Upon purchase of mineral oil the crucial role is played by two criteria. At oil have to be:

  1. Necessary specification of oil. Seldom, when the label on packing is not true as firms on production of oil exercise mutual control.
  2. Necessary viscosity of oil. It depends on primary external temperature and can be taken from the schedule above.

Additives for engine oil

"Additives should not be added to engine oil. The damages arising because of these means are excluded from guarantee maintenance" is an opinion of Audi on additives in oils. There is disputable an interrelation of the raised costs of additives for oil and the corresponding prolongation of service of the engine – especially in case of use of high-quality oils.

With what frequency it is necessary to change oil?

Audi orders replacement of oil through each 15 000 km of run or annually.

We believe that the one who goes on long distances, has to consider 15 000 km as the upper bound. But, on the other hand, the one who goes generally on short distances, has to change case contents much earlier. In cold time not later, than in six months, irrespective of probable small run. At the movement enough four months will be exclusive in city conditions for oil.

Oil replacement, where and as

  • Oil needs to be changed at the warmed engine in order that at its plum also accumulated dirt flew down.
  • During the increasing awareness of need of environment protection of a consequence against the got fulfilled oil in ground waters with the corresponding danger to drinking water are known for everything now. Utilization of the fulfilled oil merged when replacing thanks to the law on elimination of waste is simple: it can free of charge be handed over where it was bought. Trade is obliged to accept it back, only as the proof of purchase you have to show the corresponding receipt. It is even simpler if you replace oil at gas station, then you do not need to be engaged in the fulfilled oil at all, it for certain will get to the tank with the fulfilled oil.

     Important! Do not mix the fulfilled oil with other liquids!

  • In workshops, by our experience, replacement of oil is most expensive as there in a stock there are only very expensive oils. Besides, the engine already cools down by then when oil merges. And workshops raise, at least, an additional fee for work on replacement of an oil filter.
  • At gas stations most often the turn of the car approaches at once. You can choose cheaper oil from the program of sale of gas stations, and work of the technician of station is included in the price of oil.
  • Against replacement of SB oil by means of the sucking-away adaptation of objections is not present provided that after each 15 000 km of run the oil filter changes. It can be made from above.
  • Replacement of oil in house conditions is justified only on condition of acquisition of oil at the favorable price in shops of the accompanying goods, supermarkets, department store or bought at gas station. At gas station you can ask about availability of cheaper mineral oils or SB oils.

What is necessary for oil replacement?

  • Engine oil of the called specifications (is cheaper in canisters on 5 l).
  • New laying for a carving stopper of a masloslivny opening.
  • The oil filter acquired in shop of the accompanying goods.
  • Reception capacity for the fulfilled oil. Here the old canister from under oil with the cut-out sidewall or the capacity which served the for washing can serve.
  • The old canister from under oil serves for transportation of the fulfilled oil.
  • The manual butterdish will facilitate process of the gulf of engine oil.
  • Tape key for removal of the filter.
