Servicing a Audi 100 / A6

Hi, today my Audi 100 (C4) will have a full service I drove the car to bring the engine on temperature Working under the car For changing oil and the further service I have to remove this cover Turn the special screw by 90° only Here the cover is hooked in Now the cover can be removed Use a hexagon socket and a breaker bar for opening the oil drain plug Be aware that the oil is hot! For the filter I use a chain and the filter can be removed Also here some hot oil will come out Drain the system completely Use a new sealing ring for the drain plug Mount the drain plug I had several times the problem, that this housing became loose, thus I fasten the nut Coat the o-ring of the filter with grease or oil Fasten the new filter only by hand, but strong hands Fasten the drain plug, but not to tight The 6-cylinder engine with 2.6 l needs some 5l of oil Still I have no oil on the dipstick The level should be now on maximium Perfect, just at the point Run the engine at idle speed until the oil warning vanishes and increase to 2000 for a moment The oil is down to the minimum, thus we fill in 1l more The oil is at max! The next service point is the gear box oil The control plug is hidden by this cover of the drive axle Dismount the cover, it has 3 Allen bolts Here is a recess for accessing the control plug. Turn the wheel to have it at the right place Use a breaker bar and a 17 mm Allen socket If oil would come out from the hole, the level would be correct I fill new oil in, until is coming out Screw in the control plug Fasten the control plug with care Mount the cover under the driveaxle and fasten the bolts Check the exhaust system starting at the manifold The converters are new, you have seen our video No problem, everything is tight Have a look on the rubber hangers The middle muffler is still okay Here is some rust, but it it still tight The rubber hanger is in place and has no scratches Follow the exhaust to the final muffler These rubber hangers have scratches and I have to replace them Check the driveaxle boots for leakages Both outer boots are fine The same for the inner boots Look if you see some grease on the boots of the ball joint Check all rubber mountings of the stabiliser Check the tie rod end Check the brake hose and caliper for leakages Have look at the brake rotor The surface is still flat, all okay The brake pads you see best through the wheel This pad has still 5 mm, the wear limit would 2 mm Have a look at the steering gear boots. Here is all fine Starting at the tank I check the fuel lines for rust or leakages The same for the brake lines, follow the lines up to the pressure regulator Check, if the regulator is freely moving The hose is still okay Check the rear brake caliper for leakages Check if the lever of the parking brake is moving the full way At the engine I start with the engine mounts The right rear mount is also okay, the drain hose of the air condition is free Check all water and oil hoses for leakages Here we have a problem, the lower water hose to the radiator is broken Check the pressure hose of the hydraulic clutch, it looks like a brake hose The front mount of engine looks like a new one The work under the car is finished Thus I mount the cover under the engine again Turn the special bolts by 90° only and I killed one of this screw clips Look at this rubbish, Porsche would mount such a cover with 11 bolts Good, that I buy the parts always in packages of 10 Working at the engine Check the level of the cooling liquid I don’t measure the freezing point, I mixed the liquid myself The brake liquid is even over maximum The oil of the power steering is also at maximum I add some washing liquid for the windscreen The airfilter is easy to access Open the 4 clamps Lift the cover just a little to remove the filter Insert the new filter carefully and take car that you don’t destroy it with the cover Fasten the 4 clamps One of the clamps is closed the other way round Remove this cover for having a look at the timing belt The front cover is hold by 4 Allen bolts Check the drive belt, the tension is adjusted by a automatic tensioner Remove the 2 clamps and unclip the cover To see the whole timing belt, you have to crank the engine You’ll need a 24 mm polygon socket Check the whole belt while cranking the engine twice Mount the cover and fasten the clamps The spark plugs have to removed every 30000 km This engine has only 3 ignition coils, thus it fires double during a full cycle Unplug the cables from the spark plugs For loosening the spark plugs you’ll need a long 16 mm socket The sparks plugs are sitting quite deep, thus you should use some pressured air before removing them Have a look on the condition of the spark plugs Insert the new spark plug in the socket Screw the spark plug with great care in the cylinder head Fasten the spark plugs with 25 Nm Before plugging the cable have a look at the plugs and cable You may use some ignition spray Press the plugs until you hear the click Press the cables in the holder The same job now for the other cylinder row, it’s a 6 Cylinder engine! Check if the injection valves are tight and if all cables are at their place Check the small vacuum lines at the throttle Coat the throttle cable with fresh grease Check the end stages of the ignition The fuel lines are also okay Mount back the front cover Fasten the bolts with care Mount the top cover Turn the special bolts by 90° only Working around the car This tyre is washed out by a bad shock absorber A good tyre looks like this one The pressure should be depending on the load between 2.3 and 2.8 bar 2.5 bar for the front tyres Don’t forget the spare wheel I put 3 bar, it will anyhow loose pressure before we’ll need it Lubricate door hinges and tethers Lubricate locks and latches First spray oil in all corners and then put a little grease on the hook Lubricate the mechanics of the mirrors Don’t forget the hood Lubricate the rail of the sunroof with silicon spray Check the horn We are going to check all lights Position lights right and left The rear position lights work and the 2 lights at the plate work also Reverse lights Brake lights Fog light Direction indicators High beam – low beam Fog lights The height adjustment of the headlights In my C4 the battery is under the rear seat The rear seat is fastened by 2 screws Lift the seat and remove it Open all the cells Check the level of the acid A little bit is missing Measure the density of the acid We see the usual value between green and yellow I fill up with destillated water Close the cells The service is done, now we can go for the next 500000 km. Bye, Bye

  10. Hi, where is the fill plug for a 5 speed transmission in an Audi A4 from 2003 1.6 engine? Do you have any idea?
    I've seen the drain bolt and there should be a side bolt also from what I've seen. I'm asking because I've heard that they may be 2 bolts that may look the same.
