    Engine oil lights just come on, am normally ontop of things but been busy.

    basically whats the correct oil to put in a 1.9tdi on around 33k? ive got some but dout ill be putting it in unless its correct.

    any help is very much appreciative

    maybe list this as a sticky for other engines and differant oils or just general info thread.

    Really depends what is in there now ? don't put mineral oil in with synthetic and vise versa. Either way a 0/40 diesel type oil like Mobil 1 will be best. If in doubt change the lot and go fully synthetic Mobil 1 0/40

    Castrol edge fully synthetic oil 5w30 is ideal for your engine and Castrol is the best oil in the market imo but i think audi puts semi synthetic oil but its better to go to audi and ask them

    Yeap I concur 5w30 is the ticket iirc on these engines, 2.0 tdi is for sure, its called Edge or SLX 3 (iirc) only difference is one is retail name other is dealer name.

    Got some castrol 1litre for about £11 I think was cheaper as mates run a car place. Thanks for all the info my dad nearly had me putting in some daft "diesel engine oil" which was 15w40 lol told him NO!
