How Often to Change 2010 Audi R8 Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Audi R8’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2010 R8’s oil should be changed according to Audi’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your R8 in the above table. Outside of Audi-recommended oil change intervals, your R8 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Audi recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Audi R8. 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Audi R8 Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Audi R8. Audi has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2010 Audi R8 vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your R8’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your R8 by taking into account your driving style, and odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2010 Audi R8

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Audi R8? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Audi R8 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? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. 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 R8 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
