How Often to Get 2013 Audi RS5 Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Audi RS5’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just 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.”

Audi recommends changing your 2013 RS5’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your RS5 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Audi RS5. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Audi RS5 Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2013 Audi RS5 motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Audi has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2013 RS5. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your RS5's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important 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 RS5 by considering your driving preferences, and odometer.

2013 Audi RS5 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Audi RS5? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Audi RS5 engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Audi RS5 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Audi exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
