1990 Audi 100 Quattro Oil Change Service

When to Change 1990 Audi 100 Quattro Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Audi 100 Quattro’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Audi recommends changing your 1990 100 Quattro’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Audi-recommended oil change intervals, your 100 Quattro may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Audi recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Audi 100 Quattro. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Audi 100 Quattro Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1990 Audi 100 Quattro motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Audi has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1990 100 Quattro.

During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your 100 Quattro’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s 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 100 Quattro by taking into account your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1990 Audi 100 Quattro Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Audi 100 Quattro engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Audi 100 Quattro engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Audi 100 Quattro 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Audi 100 Quattro exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
