What is the Audi Engine Oil Consumption Issue?
Relatively new and low mileage Audi A4, A5 and Q5 models are using extremely high volumes of engine oil. This means that after just a few miles the engine oil light is coming on and drivers are having to fill up their engine oil.
What are Audi saying about Audi Engine Oil Consumption?
Audi have accepted that some models seem to be burning more engine oil than they should although they don’t accept it is a fault.
Typically, Audi say your engine should use ½ litre of oil for every 620 miles (1,000km) driven but some customers are finding they do not get anywhere near that before they have to top up.
What will Audi do about your Audi Engine Oil Consumption?
If you have this Audi engine oil consumption problem and take your car to an approved Audi Dealership, they will tell you that they need to carry out an Audi “Engine Oil Consumption Test.”
They will drain the oil in your engine then measure it. They will then re-fill it and ask you to drive 620 miles (1,000km) before they drain the engine oil again and re-measure it to assess how much oil has been used. Some customers are getting nowhere near the 620 mile mark before they have to go back to Audi or top up with engine oil.
Cost of an Audi Engine Oil Consumption Test?
Some Audi dealerships are carrying out Engine Oil Consumption Tests for FREE whereas others are charging up to £600 or more. Quite a difference!
What’s wrong with your Audi?
After the Engine Oil Consumption Test, Audi will (try to) diagnose the problem and may make one of many recommendations from new oil separation valves to new piston rims or even an engine rebuild. Some Audi dealerships will carry out the diagnosis for free, others will charge up to £99.
In some instances Audi are making ‘goodwill gestures’ towards the cost of parts or labour or both but it totally depends on the age, mileage, service history, where it was bought, etc. The upshot is that you could be left owing Audi £1000s to repair your car.
Diminution in Value
Have you tried to part-exchange your Audi and been refused or offered a reduced price because of this potential Audi Engine Oil Consumption problem? Audi customers are already been short changed by £1000s on trade-ins and part exchanges.
