Oil Change Q&A for Your 2015 Audi A3

  • What can low oil do to my Audi A3 engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Audi A3 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Audi A3 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Audi A3 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
