How Often to Change 2008 Audi Q7 Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2008 Audi Q7? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2008 Q7’s oil should be changed according to Audi’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Q7 in the above table. Outside of Audi-recommended oil change intervals, your Q7 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Audi recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Audi Q7. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Audi Q7. Audi has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2008 Q7.

During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Q7’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Q7 by considering your driving preferences, and odometer.

2008 Audi Q7 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Audi Q7 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Audi Q7 engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Audi Q7 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? 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 the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
