When to Change 2002 Audi A4 Quattro Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2002 Audi A4 Quattro? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2002 A4 Quattro’s oil should be changed according to Audi’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Audi-recommended oil change intervals, your A4 Quattro may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Audi A4 Quattro. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2002 Audi A4 Quattro Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Audi A4 Quattro motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your A4 Quattro’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Audi oil on my own? 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. 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 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
