Audi S4 Transmission Fluid Capacity


The Audi S4 is a great car, but it requires the right transmission fluid. The Audi S4 has many different types of fluids that are used in its systems, and understanding what each one does can be confusing. This article will help you know which type of fluid your Audi needs and how to change it!

The undersized 2022 Audi S4 isn’t particularly exciting as a sports sedan, but its low-key approach to high performance will be appreciated by those seeking a quiet performance vehicle. The turbocharged engine in the S4, which is the sportier version of the regular Audi A4, has six cylinders instead of four and produces 349 horsepower, although its quiet sound will soothe some people and deter others.

The S4 comes with an optional Full Audi Service. The transmission has to be serviced; it includes a flush, gasket, fluid change, filter replacement, hose and pan inspection, and a free multi-point check on all other components.

Because of the time it takes and the fact that the flush not only replaces the fluid in the pan but also removes fluid from cooler lines and other components of your transmission, a transmission flush is typically twice as expensive as a fluid change. A complete Audi S4 transmission clean and drain use about 10 quarts of fluid.

Changing your Audi S4’s transmission filter isn’t as simple as changing the engine oil. The filter, for example, is usually a metal plate with a fiber material that captures pollutants. Your Audi S4 will also include a pickup tube, gasket, and rubber seal, all of which must be replaced simultaneously as the filter. Every 30,000 or 50,000 miles, your Audi S4’s transmission filter must be changed. For more information on mileage and timing restrictions, see your car’s maintenance handbook.

To maintain your vehicle’s gearbox spicily and lubricated, Audi S4 transmission fluids must be changed regularly. A transmission fluid change is much less expensive than a transmission flush since it only entails a fraction of the fluid and time. If you don’t change your fluids at least every 30,000 miles or so, your car’s Audi S4 transmission may slip.

Check your car’s owner’s handbook for further information on the precise mileage ranges at which your transmission requires fluid replacement.

While the Audi S4 isn’t as quick as the BMW M340i or Mercedes-AMG C43, it does have a rapid eight-speed automatic and standard Quattro all-wheel-drive. The S4 transitions from peaceful to enjoyable with ease, but its driving style is only entertaining rather than fascinating. Despite not being exceptionally spacious, its inside is stylishly fitted, and its capacity is considerable. For mature audiences who don’t want to be noticed while driving, the 2022 S4 offers a low-key, unobtrusively sporty choice.

There are many types of fluids for your car’s automatic and manual transmissions. Automatic gearbox fluids are generally thinner and often red or green in color. Due to the method by which gears are changed in manual transmissions, the lubricant is thicker. The gearbox, as well as different elements within it, require other lubricants to function properly.

The fluids themselves are distinct between manual and automated transmissions and the degree of heat they experience. Automatic transmissions create a great deal more heat. Therefore your transmission fluid must be changed more frequently. If you don’t change your Audi S4 transmission fluid regularly, your gearbox will have broken metal shavings, and corrosive material will be distributed throughout the essential components of your vehicle.

You should check the fluid levels regularly throughout your fluid and transmission flush service periods. Because manual transmissions don’t usually include a dipstick to monitor your fluid levels, it might be pretty tricky to do so in many situations.
