5 Signs Your Audi Has an Oil Leak.......

Your Audi is a sleek, luxurious machine, and it’s crucial to stay on top of upkeep, so it runs at its best. At M & R Auto, we offer the full spectrum of repairs and maintenance services for Audi vehicles. Many Audi engines are turbocharged, which makes oil leaks a common Audi repair issue.

Audi recommends an oil change every 5,000 miles. If you don’t change your oil regularly, your engine may suffer poor performance due to carbon buildup. In extreme situations, it could lead to engine failure. Thankfully, an oil change is a simple and relatively inexpensive maintenance task.

Here are five signs your Audi may have an oil leak and is ready for an oil change:

  1. You find a puddle under your vehicle

You may notice oil pooling under your car if your Audi has an external oil leak. While it may not be oil, your vehicle should not be leaking anything. A trained mechanic will find and fix the problem, getting you safely back on the road.

  1. You smell burning oil

An internal oil leak will lead to the smell of burnt oil fumes from the exhaust, which will have white or blue smoke. An external leak will leave a burning smell from the engine. Several parts under your hood grow incredibly hot while driving, and any sprayed fluid will burn away, leaving behind the scent of burning oil. We will check your valve covers and other common causes to track down the source and fix the leak.

  1. Warning lights on your dashboard

If you notice your check engine or oil pressure lights blazing on your dashboard, you may have an oil leak in your Audi. We will hook up to your car and read the error codes. From there, we can narrow down the problem and get it fixed.

  1. Running Rough

Audis have a deserved reputation for stability on the road. If you notice your car is running rough, you may have an oil leak near the cylinders. If oil gets into the spark plugs, your Audi could misfire and lead to damage to other parts of your engine.

  1. Strange sounds from the engine

Your engine suddenly making new sounds is never a good thing. While there could be many causes for any new noises, if you hear a grinding sound while accelerating, your current oil levels may not adequately lubricate your engine.

Conclusion

M & R Auto is ready to handle all your Audi repair and service needs. Our technicians are trained to provide quality repairs you can rely on for your Audi. It’s never fun to have car troubles, but we will get you back on the road without wrecking your wallet.
