Oil Change Q&A for Your 1987 Audi 5000 Quattro

  • Should I check my Audi 5000 Quattro motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Audi 5000 Quattro engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Audi oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Audi 5000 Quattro spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
