    Best Oil for Audi TDI

    Hi

    I constantly get the oil light flashing on my dash. The oil was only changed recently along with the filter and oil pressure switch. The light comes on every 10-15 minutes once the car has warmed up and then goes away, 10-15 minutes later it comes back again.

    Is anyone else getting this problem? Its getting quite annoying now.

    After some snooping around and I think it may have something to do with the type of oil I used (I used diesel of course, just one from a high street). Is there a specific one I should use for best performance???

    Can anyone pin point what the problem may be, thank you in advance!!

    Slips ( Audi A4 1.9 TDI 1996)



    Any help appreciated

    If your car has the PD (pumpe-duse) engine than the oil you should be using is a PD oil which carries the VW code 505.01 the viscosity is 5w-40.

    If not then the code would be 505.00 which is either 0w-40, 5w-40 or 10w-40.

    Cheers

    The factory fill is by a German Company called Fuchs Lubricants.

    They supply VAG with 15,000,000 litres per annum.

    Their oils and the specs are on my website.

    They're just a bit hard to get hold of as only available through specialist outlets.

    You can always contact us. Tech details on all of their high performance range are here:
