How Often to Change 2014 Audi R8 Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2014 Audi R8? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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 having your 2014 Audi R8’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your R8 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 excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Audi recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Audi R8. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2014 Audi R8?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2014 Audi R8 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Audi has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2014 R8. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your R8’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your R8 by considering your driving preferences, and odometer.

2014 Audi R8 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Audi R8? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Audi R8 engine failure. 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 engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Audi R8 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
