Oil Change Q&A for Your 2001 Audi A6 Quattro

  • What can low oil do to my Audi A6 Quattro engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Audi A6 Quattro engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Audi A6 Quattro oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 A6 Quattro spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
