Re: Digital Hilarity


Together with your lifter noise did you notice any drop in oil
pressure when idling after the car has warmed up? Mine goes beyond
the "low" suggested by Audi, ie. below 1.8 bar. I am running
Duckhams 5W40 synthetic and I think my oil pump was messed up by the
people who fixed my oil leaks. If I remember correctly from posts
to the list from last year, most listers said synthetic does lend to
extra lifter noise. In my case I think the lifter noise is so high
due to oil starvation and the type of oil.
