2018 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 your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Audi A6 Quattro 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. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Audi A6 Quattro spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
