Need more info about 1989 Audi 100 oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of 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 1989 100’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 100 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Audi recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Audi 100. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

1989 Audi 100 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Audi 100 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Audi 100 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 oil at home? 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 with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Audi exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
