Default A4 Sedrvice manual update

I have been advised that the service manual for the A4 with the 1.8T
engine had a major error... in that it failed to stipulate syntheic
oil... and that Audi had extended the warranty on this vehicle to 70K
miles... I know that this took place, but I have never received any
notification...

Can ayone out there "enlighten" me.... I'm now sitting with an A4 with
a blown engine and a $13,500 bill!!!

Why don't you call up Audi of America customer service? They should be able
to provide you with this information. Keep in mind, they have stipulated
rather strict rules under which they'd cover engine repair/replacement under
this extended warranty, ie. you'd have to show proof of all your oil
changes, etc.

Cheers,

Pete

Synthetic oil might be the answer but others on this forum have
pointed out that under-warranty oil change intervals for the 1.8T
engine have been simply unrealistic. I bought my 2001 A4 as Audi
certified w. 36k miles showing and oil condition checked as OK on
dealer spec sheet. At 40k, had an oil sludge blockage at high speed
400 miles from home, but got it to a foreign car guy in Ohio before
major engine damage. Audi paid for his $720 repair bill plus installed
a new turbocharger, all ostensibly under that Aug. 04 extended
warranty announcement
