When to Change 2004 Audi A8 Quattro Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Audi A8 Quattro’s oil changed? Look no further than 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.”

Audi recommends changing your 2004 A8 Quattro’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Audi-recommended oil change intervals, your A8 Quattro may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, 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 A8 Quattro. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2004 Audi A8 Quattro

  • Should I check my Audi A8 Quattro motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your A8 Quattro’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Audi oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Audi A8 Quattro spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
