Right choice of engine oil

Two criteria are decisive upon purchase of the "correct" engine oil. Oil has to possess:

  • Correct specification. Deceptive labels on canisters are extremely rare because manufacturing firms mutually control each other.
  • Correct viscosity (viscosity). It depends on primary external temperature and can be tracked on the top schedule.
  • "Application of additional resources – not important what sort – in lubricant oils contradicts our maintenance instruction. The damages which resulted from use of similar means are excluded from a guarantee". Such is opinion of Audi after addition to oils. Expediency of costs of additives for oils for increase in service life of the engine continues to remain, especially if to consider use of oils with high operational properties, under a big question.

How often to change oil?

Additives to engine oil

According to instructions of Audi it is necessary to change oil each 15 000 km or a minimum once in a year. We consider that the driver going only on a long distance also has to adhere to 15 000 km as upper bound. On the other hand, the one who uses the Audi car mainly at short distances, has to change oil much earlier. In a cold season the latest – in six months, irrespective of perhaps small run. At exclusively city operation it is necessary to think of replacement of oil after four months.

The one who applies seasonal oil, has to think of its replacement according to a season – in the spring and in the fall, – that oil corresponded to external temperatures.

Oil replacement – where and how?

Engine oil has to change on the heated-up engine in order that at running off oil washed up all dirt.

  • In the conditions of the growing ecological literacy probably already for everything consequences of hit of the fulfilled oil in ground waters with the corresponding consequences for drinking water are known. The correct utilization of the fulfilled oil merged when replacing, thanks to the legislation on waste, now became absolutely simple business: it can be handed over free of charge in that shop in which you bought oil for replacement. Trade is obliged to accept at you the fulfilled oil, as proof of purchase it is necessary to show the cash voucher only. Even more simply for you if you use installation for a suction of old oil at gas station, then it is not necessary to suffer with the fulfilled oil at all.
  • In workshops replacement of oil by our experience is most expensive because there only very expensive grades of oil are applied. Besides, often the engine again cools down before while the fulfilled oil manages to descend. And work on replacement of an oil filter in addition appears in the account, at least.
  • At gas stations the car, as a rule, immediately comes to work. You can choose and cheaper oil from among on sale at gas station, besides the oil price includes at once work.
  • With suction of old oil at gas station of anything it is impossible to object to independent replacement of oil but only in case the oil filter also changes each 15 000 km. It can be made independently.
  • Independent replacement of oil justifies itself only when you can favourably get oil in autoshop of the completing goods.

What is necessary for oil replacement?

  • Engine oil of the called grades (in most cases it is possible to get in the 5 liter canister, favorable at the price).
  • New laying for a carving stopper of a masloslivny mouth.
  • Oil filter, for example Audi – No. 056 115 561 G for 4-cylinder engines, 035 115 561 for 5-cylinder engines, and also 034 115 561 And for 6-cylinder engines or under various designations of producers in autoshops.
  • Capacity for the fulfilled oil. Will approach the old oil canister with the cut-out sidewall or the served big pan.
  • The canister for the fulfilled oil will serve for transportation of the fulfilled oil.
  • By means of a butterdish it is easier to pour fresh engine oil.
  • The key collar will help to turn off an oil filter.
