When to Change 2018 Audi A5 Sportback Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Audi A5 Sportback’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.”

Your 2018 A5 Sportback’s oil should be changed according to Audi’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your A5 Sportback may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, 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 Sportback. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2018 Audi A5 Sportback

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Audi A5 Sportback? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Audi A5 Sportback engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Audi A5 Sportback oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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 A5 Sportback exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
