    OIL & SERVICE LIGHT SHOWING ON A3 MILEAGE METER?

    Hi

    Im gunna sound like a proper dumbass here but i dont know much about cars!

    Ive got a 1999 Audi A3 TDi

    Ive started getting up OIL & SERVICE flashing up on my mileage counter.

    Does this mean that my car needs a service or that it needs more oil.

    Im sure it had a service about 7 months ago, and when i check the oil its very low.

    Im driving up to T-In the park this weekend and want to know if its just a case of putting more oil in the car?

    If so then what oil is recommended?

    Thanks

    Dan

    that warning basically means that it needs a 20k mile service. Have a look in the S3/A3 FAQ for whats included in this.

    Looks like the service timer isn't in sync with your services..
