2004 Audi A6 Quattro Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Audi A6 Quattro engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your A6 Quattro’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Audi A6 Quattro 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. 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 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
