Yes it is recommended for this make vehicle, Plus on a personal note I use Mobil 1 Synthetic oil in all of my personal vehicles the protection you get from synthetic oils is well worth the few extra dollars.


Have a great night and I hope this helps you. Allen

The manufacture only recommends using an API SJ 0W-30,5W-30,or 5W-40 any Brand Name oil should meet this SJ specification its on the label. Use synthetic only if you prefer synthetic.

It doesn't have a stand alone relay like older cars and trucks, it is a synthetic click that is produced by the Body control module through the driver door speaker.

Which oil I should use for Audi A6 2.5 TDI


all AUDI/VW use 5/40 full synthetic when new,but in Europe,use 10/40 semi for 10k oil changes and 5/40 for 20k services.the computer onboard,when set correctly,will give you the change intervals.these are set by the supplying dealer when new,and only by putting on the (VW) diagnostic computer,will it give these intervals. otherwise your just guessing....(most new cars for the USA market are set to "extended"servicing regime,so use 5/40 full).

What kind of oil should i use for 2004 Audi A6 ?


It depends. If you have a turbo engine like the 2.7T, or the 4.2 V8, you should be running a quality synthetic oil like Mobil1. If you have a V6, you're OK running conventional oil (I use Valvoline conventional, 5W30, in my 99 A4 with a 30v 2.8 V6).

What type of oil do i use in my audi a6 2.8 quartto


5w30 is recommended up to 100 degrees. over that and it is recommending a 20w50. I would use a good synthetic 5w30 which is good for much higher temperatures and will easily perform well in the +100 degree range as well as the -0 temp range. Mobil 1 or Amsoil fit the bill nicely.

What oil i need for an audi A6 1.9 tdi with 100.000 miles on.I HAVE USE CASTROL MAGNATEC 10W 40 SO FAR BUT MY MECANIC TOLD ME NOT TO USE IT ANYMORE IT IS NOT SO GOOD WHAT SHOULD I USE?


I've come to love the 100% synthetic oil I put in my 1998 Audi A6 Quattro. My fuel range increased, by what % I'm not sure but it's defenitely better. All I've read about synthetics compared to conventionals solves the many questions I've had. I used to run only conventionals in my nCadilac Northstar engines till one day it blew up. I homestly believe the engine would haave never had been dameged if I wiuld have had 100% synthrtics in ig.

2001 Audi A6 2.7T I was driving on the hwy, accelerated to pass a car, minutes later the oil warning light came on. The oil temp climbed from 220 to 240. A rapid ticking began to emanated from the engine....


VERY POSSIBLE THAT IT IS ONE OF THE TURBOS THAT IS GOING OUT. WILL HAPPEN IF POOR OIL SERVICE. ALSO CHANGE YOUR OIL WITH A SLIGHTLY THICKER OIL IF OVER 80,000. I OWN A 01 2.7T WITH 89,000 AND USE ROYAL PURPLE SYNTHETIC 20W-50
