How Often to Change 1999 Audi A8 Quattro Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Audi A8 Quattro’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Audi recommends changing your 1999 A8 Quattro’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your A8 Quattro may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock 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, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Audi A8 Quattro. 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1999 Audi A8 Quattro

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Audi A8 Quattro? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Audi A8 Quattro engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Audi A8 Quattro oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Audi A8 Quattro spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
