2009 Audi A4 Avant: Oil, Please

November 04, 2010

Our long-term 2009 Audi A4 wagon has consumed some oil since it was last serviced at 25K. I checked the book and it asked for SAE 5W-40, preferably synthetic. The book said you may also use 5W-30 or 0W-40 if it meets Audi oil quality standard VW 502 00 specifications. Yeah, whatever.

I was able to find some Pennzoil full syn 5W-40, so I dumped in 2/3 of a quart because that was all that was left. I tried to check the level but couldn't find the dipstick.

Anyway, the warning message went out, but it would have been nice if I could verify the oil level myself.
