2008 Audi A4 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Audi A4? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Audi A4 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Audi A4 exhaust smoke grayish 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.
