Your 2008 A4 Quattro’s oil should be changed according to Audi’s recommended oil change 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 vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

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.

2008 Audi A4 Quattro Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Audi A4 Quattro engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your A4 Quattro’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • 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 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Audi exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
