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 2000 A8 Quattro’s oil should be changed according to Audi’s recommended oil change 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 knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Audi recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

2000 Audi A8 Quattro Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Audi A8 Quattro engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. 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.
  • How hard is it to change Audi A8 Quattro oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 help your car perform 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, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
