RE: Re: A4 oil changes
Strange... I have never really heard of Synthetic oil causing lifters to go
bad... I've been using Synthetic oils from the birth of my 86 4KCSQ and not once
have I have trouble with the lifters (even though I replaced them 5 years ago,
due to what I thought was lifters, but turned out to be the damned Vacuum pump
<grrrrrrr>) Perhaps you had another problem occur at the same time?

Is it advisable to use synthetic oil in this Audi? I have a '90 80q that I
switched over to Mobil 1 at 60K miles and it caused my lifters to go bad. After
replacing all of the lifters and switching back to "real" oil and changing at 3K
intervals, I haven't had another problem.
Also, does it make sense that my ABS OFF panel light flickers on at highway
speeds when my brakes are worn?
