How Often to Change 2017 Audi A6 Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2017 Audi A6? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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.”

Audi recommends changing your 2017 A6’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your A6 in the above table. Outside of Audi-recommended oil change intervals, your A6 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, 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 drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Audi A6. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your A6 by considering your driving style, and mileage.

2017 Audi A6 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Audi A6? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Audi A6 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Audi oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Audi exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. 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.
