Oil Change Q&A for Your 2006 Audi A8 Quattro

  • 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, engine parts can grind together, 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
