When to Change 2016 Audi A5 Quattro Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Audi A5 Quattro’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 2016 A5 Quattro’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Audi-recommended oil change intervals, your A5 Quattro may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

2016 Audi A5 Quattro Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Audi A5 Quattro? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Audi A5 Quattro engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Audi A5 Quattro oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 A5 Quattro 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 the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
