How Often to Get 2020 Audi A3 Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2020 Audi A3? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Audi recommends having your 2020 Audi A3’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your A3 in the above table. Your A3 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, 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 terrain, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Audi A3. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2020 Audi A3 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Audi A3? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your A3’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Audi A3 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil 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 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
