How Often to Get 2003 Audi A4 Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2003 Audi A4? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Audi recommends changing your 2003 A4’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your A4 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Audi if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Audi A4. 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 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Audi A4? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, 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 A4 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle 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, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
