Need more info about 2015 Audi A6 oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 2015 A6’s oil should be changed according to Audi’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your A6 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Audi recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, 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, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

2015 Audi A6 Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Audi A6 engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Audi A6 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Audi A6 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. 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 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is 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.
