Colour Of New Engine Oil ...... Post service
Just read this on Scoobynet, and the guy has gone on to say that the new oil is a dark colour .......... anyone shed some light on the issue??
"Audi 2.0T Long Life Service - Dirty Oil?>?>?
Hoping someone can provide assistance here.
We had our 2006 A3 2.0T serviced yesterday, a long life even though it's only done 9k miles - fair enough it only does short trips.
Problem I have is the oil change in the service book has been ticked 'no' but longlife ticked 'yes'
I have checked the oil on the dipstick and it's not the nice colour golden I would expect on a car that's done 5 miles back from the serving dealer.
I rang them and they assured me the oil and filter have been changed, I checked dipstick again and to me it does not look like new oil.
The service guy now tells me long life oil is a darker colour and the oil has been changed, if it hadn't the ECU would warn on the dash the service hadn't been completed.
I'm struggling to believe this to be honest - I've had a look for a new oil filter but can't even see it! - anyone know where I can see the filter from to check it's new?
Is longlife oil really darker than normal?
Have I been stiched up on a £320 1st service??!!"
