Re: Oil for 2007 AUDI A4 2.0t Quatro
The best balance of price, quality, availability that I have found is Mobil1 synthetic - it's on Audi's approved oils list. With the 2.0T engine, you absolutely want to use synthetic (the Audi turbo fours are known for oil sludge issues), and you want to do a SeaFoam treatment every 15k miles or so - that combination will keep your engine in great running shape.

Usually the oil cap will state the weight of the oil needed. Like 5W20. As far as the brand. If you keep up on the oil changes , you can use the cheaper oil. It works just fine for the 3000 mile range. If you tend to miss oil changes, then go with the better brands, as the viscosity will last longer with them.
Sounds like a bad valve lifter or a valve out of adjustment. It's probably a bad hydraulic valve lifter. In idle, when the oil pressure is lowest, it is not filling with oil. When the motor revs up, oil pressure rises and fills the faulty lifter.
If you do have mechanical lifters, the valve is probably out of adjustment. If you do car work, pull the valve cover and see if it's adjustable. Of course, you'll need the specs from VW/Audi.
Otherwise, it's probably a shop job.
You can purchase Mobil 1 European formula only as it meets the VW/Audi specification of 503.000, 0-30 weight for engines of 180 BHP or less. Some people have said that some of the Amsoil will meet this specification. Whatever sythenic oil you purchase, make sure that on the label it states meets VW/Audi specification 503.000 or 503.001 on the label. If it does, then you can buy it.
The best oil for Audi 1.9 TDI is CASTROL 0W30 SLX Longlife II (TDI Pump Nozzle) VW Norm 506.01 . This oil is issued by Castrol special for TDI - Pumpe Duse (Pump Nozzle) engine as longlife oil (50,000 km service interval, or two years). Also a normal service oil (15,000 kmservice interval, or one year) is Castrol TXT 5W40, and Castrol EDGE 5W30, for TDI Pump Nozzle engines, VW Norm 505.01.
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
you will need to pull the radio out and get the serial number off the back of the radio unit. then call up your local VW/AUDI repair shop or dealer and ask them to look up the code for you. i had to do this last week with my VW jetta.
