Audi recommends having your 2009 Audi A8 Quattro’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your A8 Quattro in the above table. No matter the mileage, your A8 Quattro may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Audi if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Audi A8 Quattro. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Audi A8 Quattro Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Audi A8 Quattro. Audi has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2009 Audi A8 Quattro vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your A8 Quattro's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your A8 Quattro by considering your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2009 Audi A8 Quattro

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Audi A8 Quattro? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess 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? 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Audi exhaust smoke gray or blue? 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, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
