Oil Change Q&A for Your 2016 Audi A4 Quattro

  • Should I check my Audi A4 Quattro motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much 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.
  • How hard is it to change Audi A4 Quattro oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 A4 Quattro exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
