How Often to Get 2011 Audi A8 Quattro Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2011 Audi A8 Quattro? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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 2011 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Audi if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

2011 Audi A8 Quattro Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Audi A8 Quattro motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Audi A8 Quattro engine failure. 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? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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? 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, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
