How Often to Get 2003 Audi RS6 Oil Changes

Need more info about 2003 Audi RS6 oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about 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.”

Your 2003 RS6’s oil should be changed according to Audi’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your RS6 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, 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, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Audi RS6. 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 RS6?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2003 Audi RS6 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional.

During your oil change service, a technician will change your RS6'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 drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your RS6 by taking into account your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2003 Audi RS6 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Audi RS6 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your RS6’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Audi oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 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. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
