Audi recommends changing your 2009 A6 Quattro’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above.

2009 Audi A6 Quattro Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Audi A6 Quattro engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your A6 Quattro’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Audi A6 Quattro spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
