How do you read the oil level on an Audi A6

There's a youtube video about checking Audi engine oil:
Get to know your Audi Checking your oil level

There's no mention of the orange plastic indicators but I would assume yes, they are the low and full indicators on the dipstick.

Checking oil level on my V3 Vortech dipstick is located on side of unit . Pics available

The dipstick tube should be as high as the top of the engine, and you should be able to remove the dipstick from it by simply pulling it straight out (no unscrewing).
No oil should come out because engine oil only goes up about a third 1/5th the way inside the engine. So unless it is overfilled, you shouldn't worry about pulling the stick up and out.
Check the oil level with the car on level ground, and with it turned off for at least 10 minutes so all the extra oil drips down to the bottom of the engine first. Then pull the stick straight up and out, wipe all the oil off of it using a paper towel or clean tissue, then put the dipstick back in (you may need to turn it left or right just a little bit to help it past some of the bends in the tube). Push it ALL the way in, then pull it straight back out again. Look for the oil sticking to it at the bottom. You should see a clear line somewhere between the full and fill lines.
If it is low, but there is at least SOME oil, take it to a Jiffy Lube and have them check and top it off. IF there is NO oil on the stick, you should not start it until some oil is added.
I cannot go in to how to add oil here as it is different on different cars - but you do NOT put oil into the dipstick hole.

I am trying to check the oil and the dipstick is confusing. there are two holes and the oil level is up to the second hole. how should the stick look if the oil is full. should the entire shaded area be...

The hole closest to the end of the dipstick is the ADD line. At this point, the oil is 1 US quart low. The SECOND hole is the FULL line. The shaded area in between the two holes is the "SAFE" area. It is not necessary to add any oil if the oil level is in this area.

I just bought 1998 Ford Escort SE and can't find the oil dipstick. Exactly where is it, and is there perhaps a picture or schematic of one so I know where I may have to install one? Thanks much.

The engine oil dipstick is located on the driver's side of the engine. Remove it and wipe the oil off the dipstick and then thread it back into the tube. Remove the dipstick and read the level. It should be between the MAX and MIN lines. Add oil if necessary. The coolant level is checked by visually inspecting the level in the reservoir while the engine is cold. It should be around the "Full Cold" line. Take a look at the coolant because oil mixed in with the antifreeze could signify a leaking head gasket. The brake master cylinder will be located on the driver's side of the firewall behind the strut tower. Pull the lid off and check the fluid level inside. To check the automatic transmission fluid level, first allow the engine to warm up to normal operating temperature, then check the fluid level on the dipstick. ------------

Thanks. keep updated for any more can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

How do i change the transmission fluid

1. A variety of fluids are used for different transmissions. Automatic transmissions use something called - shockingly - automatic transmission fluid. Manual transmissions use a variety of oils: regular motor oil, heavyweight hypoid gear oil or even automatic transmission fluid in some cases. Your owner’s manual will tell you what your transmission calls for. So, get to know what type of transmission fluid should be used for your vehicle. This information is contained in your owner’s manual - if not contact the manufacturer who should be able to tell you.
2. Park your car so that it is level on the ground and leave the gear in Park or Neutral position. Usually the ATF is checked at the idling engine but everything depends on your vehicle. Firstly read your owner?s manual carefully and if it requires the engine to be running, start the car up and wait for it to warm.
3. Locate the ATF dipstick. Usually it is a bit shorter than the engine oil dipstick. In some cases it will have a label on it, so your job will be made much easier!
4. Take the dipstick out.
5. Do the same once again in order to make sure the dipstick indication is true.
6. The color and smell of transmission fluid can also indicate potential problems. Wipe the fluid onto a white sheet of paper or kitchen towel. It is usually red, and should be transparent and clean in appearance and free of black bits or flakes. It may be more reddish-brown because of age but never should be dark or black or smell of burning. You may not be able to fix the car if the fluid shows some of these characteristics, so just seek professional advice.
7. Check the top of the dipstick and see if the fluid marking comes up to the ‘full’ line. Also check that you are looking at the warm reading - there should be one for ‘warm’ and one for ‘cold’.
8. You need to add some more fluid if it does not come to up to the ‘full’ line. Unlike engine oil, transmission oil doesn’t burn up. So if you’re low on transmission fluid, you almost certainly have a leak. Carefully look for leak and if you find it remove as soon as you can. In case it is left it can cause the expensive repair of transmission system.
9. To add the fluid, simply use a funnel to pour it into the system. Add the fluid slowly and keep checking the dipstick until it reaches the ‘full’ point. Remember, you’ll waste your time taking the ATF out again if you add it too much.
10. Wipe the dipstick when finish the work and make sure it is back in securely.

Transmission level inspection 2002 freelander

I am not sure on Land Rovers but to check automatic transmission fluid the car needs to be running, warmed up, and on level ground. Search the rear sides of the engine bay for a dipstick that usually has an orange or red handle on it. Once you find it the fluid should be red, if it is you have the right dipstick. Yellow handles are usually oil dipsticks so be careful. Your user manual in the glove box should have pictures of where its located.
