How Often to Change 2014 Audi Q5 Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2014 Audi Q5? Get the advice you need at 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.”

Audi recommends changing your 2014 Q5’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Q5 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Audi recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Audi Q5. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2014 Audi Q5 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Audi Q5? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Audi Q5 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 oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Audi Q5 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
