Audi recommends having your 2003 Audi A4 Quattro’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your A4 Quattro 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 notice excess vehicle exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Audi A4 Quattro. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2003 Audi A4 Quattro Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Audi A4 Quattro motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, 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.
  • Can I change my Audi oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
