How Often to Get 1990 Audi 100 Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1990 Audi 100? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

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

In an oil change service, a technician will change your 100's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your 100 by considering your driving preferences, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1990 Audi 100

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Audi 100? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Audi 100 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Audi 100 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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 exhaust smoke grayish 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
