    2003 Audi A6 1.9 TDI with 260K

    Ok I've always got the Audi main dealer to do previous gearbox oil changes, but decided to do this one myself.

    Before I drained the oil I ran the gearbox oil to about 80Deg C and then dropped the inspection plug (expecting a few ml to come out due to thermal expansion) but about 700 ml came out????

    I followed the instructions for refilling all went fine but in total about 700ml more came out than went in? Ive tried topping up twice with the car level and oil at 35deg C etc due to make sure the pump is primed but its still about 500 ml short of what came out??


    I can only assume it was overfilled by Audi at the last change - unless the oil expands over time?

    Thoughts - Have I missed something - the car drives fine?

    The oil is synthetic and expands considerably with temperature which is why the 30 to 40 degree window is so important. We always level set at 30 so you doing it at 35 and basing your measuring on an 80 degree drain would easily account for the difference.

Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    I would just do a 30 level plug drop, if little comes out, add some, let it drain and seal. You can’t be too obsessive or you will end up bent, burnt out and destroyed like me.
