Audi recommends changing your 2017 A5 Quattro’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your A5 Quattro 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 knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Audi A5 Quattro. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2017 Audi A5 Quattro Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Audi A5 Quattro motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your A5 Quattro’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Audi A5 Quattro oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Audi A5 Quattro exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
