On the 1993 model year there is no dipstick.  One is
available from the dealer for about $20.00.  It's
about two feet long.  The fill tube is in the engine
compartment with an orange cap.  This is where the
dipstick also goes.  I am not sure if the 1994 model
is the same way.  I still can't believe that Audi
built this car without a dipstick!!!
