When to Change 2016 Audi A6 Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2016 Audi A6? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2016 A6’s oil should be changed according to Audi’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your A6 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. 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.

2016 Audi A6 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Audi A6? Engine oil lubricates 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 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Audi A6 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces 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 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
