Oil Change Q&A for Your 2018 Audi A8 Quattro

  • Should I check my Audi A8 Quattro motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, 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.
  • How hard is it to change Audi A8 Quattro oil at home? 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Audi exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
