Audi A8 Engine Oil Finder

As with all cars, ensuring you regularly change the engine oil and keep it topped up is one of the most important things you can do to help maintain your engine.

Many of us would love to be able to change the engine oil of our Audi A8 by ourselves because the labour cost of your load garage can be very expensive. However modern cars are getting more and more complicated and you cannot always carry out all their maintenance yourself. Whilst you might need to pay a mechanic to do a full engine oil change, a simple oil top up is fairly easy to do yourself. Here we are going to help you find the right engine oil for your Audi A8.

Money Saving Fact: Changing the oil in your A8 will defiitley be the cheapest way. However most people don't want the hassel of getting all oily and dirty. But you can still save money even if you use a local garage or Audi dealiership. Most people don't realise that when taking your A8 to a local garage or Audi dealership you can provide the oil for the oil change yourself. You can order the right type of oil cheaply on the internet or pick up at your local automative center (like Halfords or even some supermarkets). But make sure that you buy an Audi/VW approval approved engine oil so there are no problems with your factory warranty.

The purpose of the oil in your Audi A8 is to lubricate your engine block to ensure that all the gears that make it up are able to turn without problems, and to ensure the integrity of each of its elements. At the same time the oil also reduces friction to prevent wear and has other roles such as stopping corrosion, helping to dissipate heat in the engine block and guaranteeing sealing.

In the Audi A8 (TDI & TFSI engines) only engine oil with the appropriate manufacturer approval (e.g. for many engines a 5W30 LL oil with VW 504 00 and 507 00 specification) can be used!

What Engine Oil For Audi A8?

Every engine oil will have its viscosity grade labelled on the packaging. This will look something like 0W-20, 5W-30 or 5W-40. This grading is used to measure how thick / fluid the oil is and help ensure you buy the right oil for your car. The lower the viscosity grade of the oil, the more fluid and thinner it will be than those with a high grade (higher numbers) which will be much less running and thick.

So which engine oil should you buy for your Audi A8? Whether you are topping up your Audi A8 oil or doing a full change of your Audi A8's oil it is really important that you use the correct grade of oil.
