Oil Change Q&A for Your 2018 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron

  • 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 you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Audi oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Audi A3 Sportback e-tron exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
