Oil Change Q&A for Your 2016 Audi A8 Quattro

  • Should I check my Audi A8 Quattro motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your A8 Quattro’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • 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 figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Audi A8 Quattro exhaust smoke grayish 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 the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
