Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2014 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.”

Your 2014 A8 Quattro’s oil should be changed according to Audi’s recommended oil change 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Audi recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. 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’s the Right Type of Oil for 2014 Audi A8 Quattro?

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 specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2014 Audi A8 Quattro vehicles.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2014 Audi A8 Quattro

  • Should I check my Audi A8 Quattro motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Audi A8 Quattro engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Audi A8 Quattro oil at home? 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. 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 A8 Quattro exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
