What oil do i use to top up hydraulic roof on audi 80 cab


... 1994 Audi Cabriolet

Top of the engine is ticking. friend told me it could be a valve that is clogged or stuck open and thats its not a huge problem but it might be mixing gas and oil. to me that sounds like a problme. websites say its "Ticking noise from the top of 3.2L V6 engine may be due to hydraulic lash adjuster failure caused by varnish deposits and using 0W-30 Mobil I synthetic oil has been successful in cleaning them." what is the most likly answer.


It sounds like hydraulic lifter noise. The lifters open and shut the valves and can be helped by using a good synthetic oil and frequent oil changes. Lash is the clearance between the valves and lifters. ... 1993 Isuzu Trooper

Loosing oul my 2006 audi a3 had an oil change around 90 100 and already at 95 000 its showing me a min oil light. i use motul synthetic oil and i am not sure why this is occuring with the a3. the only thing i can do right now is top it up with some more oil but if there is any type of fix for this problem it would be good to know how it can be done thanks.


If there are no leaks as you say and the underneath is free of oil spray then the next culprit would be oil coming out the tail pipe because of worn engine rings. Or possibly getting by the valve inserts and collecting in the valley. Other than that ... 2006 Audi A3

I have a 98 A4 AUDI and need to replace engine oil and hydraulic oil...any recommendations on what brands/types of oil to use?

Hi: My Z4 roof (soft top) won't go down, I am sure that it is the hydraulic pump, maybe all it needs is some oil added. But the issue is, getting the roof off, does any of the "experts" have any detail on how to remove the roof without distroying it. Thanks Bill

Hi there gurus.. I have hydraulic leaks in the pipes of my E46 M3 roof. I still have to get that fixed but I need to collect a hard top this weekend. Is it possible to open the roof and stow it manually. I read in the manual that you can close it using the key but it advises against opening it manually. The roof will open partly but then stops. Can I fold it back manually without damaging?


You can fold it back manually but u will need to disconnect the hydraulic lift cylinders at the pump, when u fold it down the fluid will flow out of the lines from the cylinders, so have some way to capture that fluid like a narrow neck ... BMW M3

Hi, "Check soft top" warning comes on whenever I start moving from standstill. Also roof does not operate at all - nothing!

Engine noise hi i have a audi a4 2004 i have a noise on the engine i check the oil level and is ok but the oil pressure light is on all the time i need to know if any way my oil pump is bad or is my engine cuz the noise is really bad like is no oil on the top of the engine ....


Well, if the low-oil-pressure warning light is on, and the engine is knocking, and there is plenty oil in the crankcase, then the oil pump must not be circulating oil thru the engine. So, I agree -- I think your oil pump is bad. ... 2004 Audi TT

I'm thinking of buying a 1993 Audi, selling price is $500.00. I test drove the vehicle - nice ride and handling. The seller said that there was an oil leak, which she was putting in 1-11/2 quarts every couple weeks. I noticed after test-driving, that oil was dripping out of the tail pipe. There was no sign of a leak from the engine area on the ground where the car had been sitting. Any idea what's going on and why the car is using so much oil?


Oil out of the exhaust would mean worn rings, worn valve stem seals or both. This would usually be accompanied by white smoke exiting the tailpipe. (mileage in the region of 100000miles plus??) Another explanation could be a cracked cylider head. ... 1995 Audi 90
