Audi recommends changing your 1999 A4’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your A4 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust.

1999 Audi A4 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Audi A4? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Audi A4 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Audi oil on my own? 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces 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 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. 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.
