As an independent Audi service garage with over 27 years of hands-on experience, we've seen many mechanical breakdowns on vehicles. Experience has shown that changing your fluids is the single most important preventive maintenance routine you can perform to avoid vehicle breakdowns. Yet, for many Audi owners, this seems to be one of the most neglected areas of maintenance. Thoroughly flushing your fluids at the proper intervals can help your car reach 150,000 miles and beyond!
Refer to the owner's manual and factory manual for Audi oil change instructions.<br > Blauparts recommend having an A.S.E. certified Audi mechanic perform vehicle maintenance.<br > Warning: Be careful when handling hot engine oil. Always wear gloves and wear safety goggles when handling Audi fluids!

Audi Oil Change Tools Needed<br > - Regular screw driver for under-body plash pan<br > - 19mm wrench for oil pan drain plug<br > - Oil filter wrench for oil filter removal<br > - Oil drain pan container<br > - Pouring Funnel
How To Step 1Allow your engine oil to warm up. Drive it for approximately 5-10 minutes, allowing the older used motor oil to warm up for optimal oil flow and thorough drainage.<br >
How To Step 2With a regular screw driver remove the under-body plash pan.
How To Step 3Open your hood. Locate the oil fill cap and loosen but do not remove. This will minimize crankcase pressure creating an easier flow for the old oil to drain from the engine, minimizing oil splashing. <br >
How To Step 4Place a suitable oil drain pan container just bellow the engine oil pan drain plug. With 19mm wrench loosen and remove the oil pan drain plug. Allow the oil to drain from the engine into the oil drain pan container. This is located on the driver side of the oil pan.
How To Step 5While the oil is draining, inspect the oil pan drain plug and sealing washer. If the threads on the plug look worn, replace the oil drain plug. Reinstalling a worn oil drain plug may lead to the damage of the internal oil pan's threads, causing replacement of the whole oil pan. A worn oil drain plug can also inhibit the factory torque causing a poor seal and possible oil leaks. If the washer looks crushed it should also be replaced. Failure to do so could allow for oil leaks. While the oil is draining, inspect the oil drain plug. Blauparts recommends a new drain plug and washer every 4-6 oil changes (depending on condition).
