How Often to Change 2017 Audi RS3 Oil

Need more info about 2017 Audi RS3 oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about 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.

Audi recommends having your 2017 Audi RS3’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your RS3 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Audi if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Audi RS3. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Audi RS3?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2017 Audi RS3 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Audi has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2017 RS3. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your RS3’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your RS3 by considering your driving style, and odometer.

2017 Audi RS3 Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Audi RS3 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Audi RS3 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? 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Audi RS3 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
