An oil change is one of the essential maintenance services that should not be put off. This is because motor oil is the lifeblood of your engine, providing lubrication for fast-moving parts. Over time, the oil will become dirty and contaminated, necessitating a change. Timely oil changes extend engine’s longevity and enhance its overall performance.
Fortunately, with the new synthetic engine oils, you don’t have to get engine oil changed as often as in the past. If your Audi uses full synthetic engine oil, the rule of thumb is to change the oil every 5,000 miles or 6 months. You Owner’s Manual will provide manufacturer recommendations which, ideally, you would follow.
We cannot overstress the importance of regular engine oil change. Regular service is required to keep the manufacturer’s warranty in force, but it’s the other benefits that make regular oil change so valuable. Fresh engine oil provides better lubrication, thus putting less strain on the engine. Visiting your mechanic regularly also allows them to inspect your vehicle for any developing problems – at Diablo Auto Specialists in Walnut Creek we offer free digital vehicle inspection with every service. It gives us an opportunity to catch and fix any developing problems before they reach critical stage. This becomes particularly important as your Audi gets older, and requires more maintenance.
So if it has been a while, or more than 5,000 miles, treat your Audi to a synthetic oil change – it will thank you with improved performance and worry free service.
