Audi A4 (B9) 2016-2022 Owner's Manual: Engine oil

If the engine oil level too low

If you need to add engine oil, use an oil that is listed on the sticker. The sticker is located at the front of the engine compartment fig. 158. When using the engine oil listed on the sticker, you can adjust the oil level as often as needed.

If engine oil that meets the recommended specification is not available, in an emergency you may add a maximum of 0.5 quart (0.5 liter) of ACEA C3 or API SN engine oil one time until the next oil change.

Audi recommends having the oil changed by an authorized Audi dealer or authorized Audi Service Facility.

Note

Audi recommends using approved engine oil that meets the respective VW standard. Using engine oils which do not meet these quality standards can cause damage to the engine.

Tips

Audi recommends using engine oils provided by Audi Genuine Parts.

Messages

The following messages may appear depending on the vehicle equipment:

Turn off engine. Oil pressure too low

Stop driving and switch the engine off. Check the engine oil level.

Applies to: vehicles with oil level warning

Please add oil immediately.

Stop driving and switch the engine off. Check the engine oil level and add engine oil immediately.

Add max. x qt (x l) oil. You can continue driving

Add the amount of oil shown immediately.

Please reduce oil level

There is too much oil in the engine and there is a risk of damaging the catalytic converter or engine.

Drive to an authorized Audi dealer or authorized Audi Service Facility immediately to have engine oil extracted if necessary. Avoid high engine speeds, full acceleration, and heavy engine loads.

Oil level sensor: oil change necessary. Please contact Service

Fuel has entered the engine oil. This will cause the engine oil level to rise slowly and the engine oil quality to decrease. Do not extract engine oil to reduce the level, because this will increase the risk of engine damage. Drive to an authorized Audi dealer or authorized Audi Service Facility immediately to have engine oil extracted.

Oil level system: malfunction! Please contact Service

The sensor that checks the engine oil level has malfunctioned. Drive immediately to an authorized Audi dealer or authorized Audi Service Facility to have the malfunction repaired.

Oil pressure sensor: malfunction! Please contact Service

The sensor that checks the engine oil pressure has malfunctioned. Drive immediately to an authorized Audi dealer or authorized Audi Service Facility to have the malfunction repaired.

Please drive to warm up engine

Especially low outside temperatures are a main reason why fuel may get into the engine oil. The fuel can only evaporate from the engine oil if the engine oil temperature is high enough.

Drive in the "S" gear.

Drive the engine at higher RPMs while avoiding full acceleration.

You should drive for at least 30 minutes. The indicator light may not turn off during this time.

Repeat the steps that are described at any time.

Have an authorized Audi dealer or authorized Audi Service Facility repair the malfunction if the indicator light does not turn off after a few drives.

WARNING

When the message Please drive to warm up engine appears, adjust your speed according to the weather, road, terrain, and traffic conditions. You should never disobey the traffic laws applicable in the country in which you are driving in order to follow driving recommendations.

Tips

The oil pressure warning is not an oil level indicator. Always check the oil level regularly.

Checking the engine oil level

The engine oil level can be checked in the MMI.

Observe the safety precautions General information.

Note

If the engine oil level is too low or too high, there is a risk of engine damage.

Tips

The oil level indicator in the display is only an informational display. If the oil level is too low, a minimum oil warning appears in the instrument cluster. Add oil and close the hood.

The current oil level will be displayed on the MMI the next time the ignition is switched on.

Tips

The engine oil consumption may be up to 0.5 quart/600 miles (0.5 liter/1,000 km), depending on driving style and operating conditions.

Consumption may be higher during the first 3,000 miles (5,000 km). The engine oil level must be checked regularly. It is best to check each time you refuel your vehicle and before long drives.

Changing engine oil

Audi recommends having the oil changed at an authorized Audi dealer or authorized Audi Service Facility.

Observe the safety precautions General information.

The engine oil must be changed at the intervals specified in the Warranty & Maintenance Booklet.

This is very important because the Lubrication function of the oil gradually declines during regular vehicle operation.

The engine oil should be changed more frequently under certain circumstances. Have the oil changed more frequently if you often drive short distances, your vehicle is predominantly in stopand- go traffic situations, is in very dusty environments, or is operated for long periods of time in temperatures below zero.

Cleansing additives in the oil make fresh oil appear darker after the engine has run briefly. This is normal and no reason to change the engine oil more frequently than recommended.

Because correctly disposing of engine oil is difficult and special tools and technical knowledge are needed for an oil change, Audi recommends having your engine oil changed by an authorized Audi dealer or authorized Audi Service Facility.

If you change the engine oil yourself, please note the following important information:

WARNING

If you change the engine oil on the vehicle yourself, the following precautions must be followed:

Note

Do not mix any additives with the engine oil.

Additives may cause engine damage that is not covered by your New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
