2005 Audi A8 Quattro Oil Change

When to Change 2005 Audi A8 Quattro Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2005 Audi A8 Quattro? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of 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 2005 A8 Quattro’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your A8 Quattro may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, 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 areas, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your A8 Quattro by considering your driving style, and mileage.

2005 Audi A8 Quattro Oil Change Questions

  • 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, overheat, and eventually lead to Audi A8 Quattro engine failure. 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. 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Audi A8 Quattro spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
