Hello, recently i have ordered Shell Helix Ultra ECT 5W-30 oil for my 2.0 TDI (140hp) audi a3, but i think they messed up my order and i received Shell Helix Ultra ECT 0W-30. Is it save to use this oil? It still has VW 507 00 approval. Are there any downsides to using this oil ?
2.0 tdi brd pd170 yellow oil light has been coming on now for a while, oil is full every time. Today i took the cap off and the light went off which says to me pressure but the cap didnt blow out my hand or come off with force. Originally i thought it was a dodgy sensor before removing the cap...
I am having a small issue with my B6, the oil pressure came on intermittently so I have had the oil pick up pipe replaced as that is the main cause of the issue as far I can see.
After collecting my car back from the garage, after this pipe replacement and an MOT, on my way home...
so i have a MK1 TT 150 fwd roadster
had been sat for a week in the rain while i was working away, came back to it and when i started it the clocks were dead, central computer on but not responsive and not reading temps
drove and after about 1mile all was fine
the next day...
I've got a BFB 1.8t A4 (B7).
I think I need to replace my rocker cover (oil in the coil pack area, slightly lumpy idle).
Any jobs that are worth doing while I'm there?
Car is a 2007, and almost everything looks to be original - so happy to refresh what I can while I'm there...
I have Audi A3 8V 2013 1.4 TFSI (122HP) for a year. When I bought it I done "small" service, oil change, all filters and service of air contidion.
After 3 months / 3.000KM i got "Check oil level" warning message. I bought and put 1 liter of oil. 2 months after that i get that message...
Just wondering does the S3 8V have an oil sensor like the S4? The S4 used to advise when to add 1L of oil when it needed, does the S3 have the same thing or is it just the basic dipstick check?
Had some worrying symptoms from my TFSI the last couple weeks. I noticed the other day when I was checking the oil a considerable amount of emulsion was apparent on the dipstick. I had hoped this was due to condensation building up in the crankcase from not being used for 3 weeks...
Hi guys, I've had my Audi s3 8P about 3 months now. Was just driving home and the coolant temp started to go above 90, was literally half a mile away from home so thought I'd try get it there, then the red low oil pressure sign come up.
Just pulled over, turned the car off and let the fan run...
I’m looking for answers?
Re my 2.0 tfsi bul Quattro Se.
I don’t understand this car at all for last 4 years oil light goes off every 3 months from full. Today the oil light went off December 2019. I last topped up May 2019. So the oils lasted 7 months even though I’ve done nothing...
Bit of an amateur question.
I have the new GPF equipped S3, not sure if it makes a difference. And the car is completely standard.
Was wondering what is the best engine oil for it? Castrol is written on the oil cap, but was wondering which one....
Thanks in advance.
I found the smell of fuel in my oil around a week ago, so I instantly stopped driving it and ordered a new HPFP (which I was lead to believe from previous posts was the issue) had a brand new one from Audi and fitted it along with a full oil change and filter change, just did a cursory...
Bought an Audi A4 Avant 2010 Multitronic 2.0l about 4 months ago and started having some issues with it. It has 130,000 miles.
From cold it judders when moving off, has low power (until around 2000rpm) and awful rattle/grinding sound when pressing on the gas (up to around 1500 revs)...
Hi, I have a 2008 petrol 1.4 TFSI Hatchback I bought almost a year ago with ~103k KM, changed the oil and all the filters then after some research, opting for the Castrol EDGE FST 5w40 as I read it was better for "higher mileage" cars.
I'm now at around 114k km and thought it's time to change...
I have an audi 2010 a3 8p black edition 1.8TFSI petrol around 70k milage. Been running a dream since i got it at 30k, regular services no major work
However - it RUNS through oil. Id say 5L every 2-3 months. Ive coped but enough is enough.
Also - when idle and rev the car - puffs of...
I've seen a few forum posts mentioning issues with the 2.0TFSI oil pump. Is there an intrinsic design issue with them, and if so, how can I try to mitigate it on mine? I saw a link to this kit which claims to remove the (allegdly) problematic sprung loaded balance shaft sproclet...
This morning I’ve noticed a fair amount of oil residue from my engine filler cap - on closer inspection I have noticed it isn’t properly closed/sealed tightly allowing a small amount of oil to leak out.
I have taken the cap off and replaced several times but no matter what I can’t get...
