How Often to Change 2014 Audi A5 Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Audi A5’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Audi recommends changing your 2014 A5’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your A5 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Audi if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Audi A5. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Audi A5 Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Audi A5. Audi has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2014 A5. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your A5’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your A5 by taking into account your driving style, weather and road conditions,

2014 Audi A5 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Audi A5 motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your A5’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Audi A5 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Audi exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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 damaged cylinder walls.
