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 2017 A4’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your A4 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Audi recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, 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. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2017 Audi A4 Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Audi A4 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. 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 oil on my own? 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 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. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
