What kind of oil does an Audi S4 take?
For gasoline engines, you can use oil with a viscosity of SAE 5W-40 across all temperature ranges for normal driving conditions. However, if that grade is not available, you can use 5W-30 or an alternate viscosity grade as long as it meets the proper Audi oil-quality standard. For Diesel engines use SAE 5W-30.
Is it OK to use 5W30 instead of 5W40?
If you are racking your brain to choose between 5w30 and 5w40, we recommend you go with 5w30. However, if it is too expensive or not available for use, you can always go with the 5w40, which is just as good and will not cause any damage to the engine parts.
What type of oil does a 2005 Audi S4 take?
Valvoline Synthetic Motor Oil 5W-30 5 Quart.
How much oil does a 2004 Audi S4 take?
2004-2007 Audi S4 4.2L oil fill capacity is 9.5 quarts or 9 liters.
Can I use 10w40 instead of 5w30?
One must use the oil specified by the manufacturer. If you use 10-w-40 instead of 5-w-30 specified by the manufacturer then the viscosity of 10-w-40 used by you will be higher and oil thicker than what is specified during winters.
What’s the difference between 5w30 and 5w40?
In practice, this means that each oil is just as viscous at lower temperatures and will remain viscous at -30°C, however 5w40 oil outperforms 5w30 oils at higher temperatures, being effective up to ambient temperatures of 50°C, as opposed to 30°C.
Can I use 10w 40 instead of 5w40?
10w40 is thicker than 5w40, ONLY when cold. At operating temperature it is exactly the same. Multi-viscosity oils with a lower W number are specifically designed to flow better, and thus lubricate better, at very low temperatures. There is no need to use a 5w-40 if the vehicle only requires 10w–40.
What happens if you put wrong oil in car?
Using the wrong oil can lead to reduced lubrication and shorter engine life. If the manual says to use synthetic oil, do so. Contrary to what some believe, adding synthetic oil to regular oil won’t harm the engine, but there’s also no benefit in doing so.
What is 5W-40 oil used for?
5W–40 motor oil. The 5W–40 viscosity is a prevalent recommendation for performance engines in European vehicles with gas-powered engines, and in American diesel pickup trucks. We offer 5W–40 oils for gasoline- and diesel-powered engines.
