How Often to Change 1997 Audi A4 Quattro Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Audi A4 Quattro’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 1997 Audi A4 Quattro’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your A4 Quattro may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Audi recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Audi A4 Quattro. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1997 Audi A4 Quattro

  • What can low oil do to my Audi A4 Quattro engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Audi A4 Quattro engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Audi A4 Quattro oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think.

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 A4 Quattro spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
