How Often to Get 2016 Audi Q5 Oil Changes

Need more info about 2016 Audi Q5 oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about 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 having your 2016 Audi Q5’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Q5 in the above table. Your Q5 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Audi if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Audi Q5. 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.

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Audi Q5. Audi has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2016 Audi Q5 vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your Q5’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Q5 by taking into account your driving habits, and mileage.

2016 Audi Q5 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Audi Q5 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates 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 Q5 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it 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. 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 Q5 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
