Audi recommends having your 2011 Audi A5 Quattro’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your A5 Quattro may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Audi recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Audi A5 Quattro. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2011 Audi A5 Quattro Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Audi A5 Quattro engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts.
