Oil Change Q&A for Your 2010 Audi A3 Quattro

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Audi A3 Quattro? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Audi A3 Quattro engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Audi oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Audi A3 Quattro spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
