2006 Audi A4 Quattro Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Audi A4 Quattro? 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, overheat, 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 A4 Quattro oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Audi exhaust smoke gray 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, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
