2017 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Audi A3 Sportback e-tron engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Audi A3 Sportback e-tron engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Audi A3 Sportback e-tron oil at home? 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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 A3 Sportback e-tron spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
