2017 Audi A8 Quattro Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Audi A8 Quattro engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Audi A8 Quattro 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 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. 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? 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 the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
