How Often to Get 2011 Audi A4 Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Audi A4’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Audi recommends changing your 2011 A4’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Audi-recommended oil change intervals, your A4 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Audi A4. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Audi A4?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2011 Audi A4 motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Audi has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2011 A4. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your A4’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your A4 by considering your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2011 Audi A4

  • What can low oil do to my Audi A4 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your A4’s engine to fail. 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 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Audi A4 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
