2009 Audi A4 Avant: Oil Filler Painfully Easy to Find, Use
March 22, 2010
As you can see, our A4 needed a little more grease in the crankcase this weekend. I like how the display warns gives you a warning without making it look like the engine is going to explode any minute. Probably a good method given the average driver's meager knowledge of oil consumption.
Adding oil was a snap as the crankcase cap is top dead center. Doesn't get much easier than that. And before you get too concerned that I took the path of least resistance when it came to finding a quart of oil, the A4 is due for a real service this week. I'm pretty sure it can endure a few days of Shell's finest until then.
