Oil Change Q&A for Your 2006 Audi A6 Quattro

  • What can low oil do to my Audi A6 Quattro engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Audi A6 Quattro engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Audi A6 Quattro oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
