When to Change 2016 Audi A3 Quattro Engine 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 are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of 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 changing your 2016 A3 Quattro’s oil 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 engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess 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 terrain, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Audi A3 Quattro. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Audi A3 Quattro Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Audi A3 Quattro. Audi has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2016 A3 Quattro. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your A3 Quattro’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your A3 Quattro by considering your driving style, weather and road conditions,

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2016 Audi A3 Quattro

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Audi A3 Quattro? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Audi A3 Quattro engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Audi A3 Quattro oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
