Audi recommends having your 2020 Audi Q3’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Q3 in the above table. Your Q3 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 car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Audi Q3. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

2020 Audi Q3 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Audi Q3 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Audi Q3 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Audi Q3 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 Q3 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is 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 worn cylinder walls.
