Need more info about 1995 Audi A6 oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1995 A6’s oil should be changed according to Audi’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your A6 in the above table. Your A6 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Audi recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Audi A6. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Audi A6 Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Audi A6. Audi has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 1995 A6. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your A6's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1995 Audi A6 Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Audi A6 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Audi A6 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Audi A6 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Audi A6 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
