When to Change 2018 Audi R8 Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Audi R8’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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.”

Audi recommends having your 2018 Audi R8’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your R8 may need its oil changed ASAP 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 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 drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Audi R8. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Audi R8 Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2018 Audi R8 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Audi has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2018 Audi R8 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 R8’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other 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 style, and odometer.

There's a reason we carry these motor oil brands. They are tested and trusted.

Unlike traditional synthetic motor oils, the Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic line of motor oils with PurePlus® Technology is formulated from pure natural gas, which helps lead to better performance. But don't forget about Shell Rotella for heavy-duty engines. It's expressly designed for gasoline and diesel engines that need to withstand rugged conditions, and is uniquely fortified to offer increased wear protection, heightened performance in extreme temperatures, and improved oxidation resistance.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2018 Audi R8

  • Should I check my Audi R8 motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Audi R8 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Audi R8 oil at home? 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 changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform 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. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
