When to Change 2013 Audi A4 Engine Oil

Need more info about 2013 Audi A4 oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.”

Your 2013 A4’s oil should be changed according to Audi’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Audi-recommended oil change intervals, your A4 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess 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 areas, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

2013 Audi A4 Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Audi A4 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your A4’s engine to fail. 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Audi exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
