2018 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 parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Audi A5 Quattro engine failure. 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? 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Audi A5 Quattro spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
