Hi Falek
Great clip
Please if you can help me with next one;
I bought Audi A6,2009 2.0fsi 170hp here in Kuwait. When put in Sport drive, it kind a jerk it’s smooth like in normal D. Car has 119k km.
Im pretty sure that previous owner didn’t change transmission oil and filter.
Here are temperatures are nuts 9 months during year. Any advice would be appreciated. Is it time for oil change or it is something more serious!?
Tnx a lot

Did I miss it? Why did you not do a full flush? Are you not concerned about reusing much the old fluid?

Francois Ducharme says:

Hello Felek, thanks for the video. I have the 8-speed tip on a A5 2015, 72,000km. My question is if I can simply drain and fill (through) the fill hole a few times and call it done, I.e. not change the filter nor drop the pan. Q1) Was there a lot of oil that came out initially through the drain plug? How much do you think? Q2) If I do it properly 2 or 3 times at an interval of 3,000-4,000km , I would assume the fluid would be changed sufficiently, no? Thoughts ?

Mohan J says:

Nice video. Whats your opinion on changing the fluid on 2013 A4 quattro at 80K Miles for the first time?

Michael G says:

Felek how does ravenol ATF compare to the ATF you used in your video? Which do you think is better? Also what is the brand of the filter kit you are using? Do you know the name of the brand Audi uses?

Waleed A.Malek says:

In a 2007 automatic transmission Audi A6 3.2, would you change the oil if the car has 180,000 km? and never been changed before.

Waleed A.Malek says:

hello… do you have a video showing Audi A6 C7 2014 DSG 7 speed transmission oil change please.

Hello there! What is the reason for Audi a7 acceleration without strength?

Hey Felek
How do you lift and put your A6 on jack stands? As far as I can tell the jacking point is the same as the lifting point.
