How Often to Change 2013 Audi A3 Quattro Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Audi A3 Quattro’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Audi recommends having your 2013 Audi A3 Quattro’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your A3 Quattro in the above table. Outside of Audi-recommended oil change intervals, your A3 Quattro may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Audi if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Audi A3 Quattro. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2013 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 you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Audi A3 Quattro engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Audi A3 Quattro oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Audi A3 Quattro exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
