How Often to Get 1993 Audi 100 Oil Changes

Need more info about 1993 Audi 100 oil changes? Get the advice you need at 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 having your 1993 Audi 100’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Audi-recommended oil change intervals, your 100 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Audi if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Audi 100?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1993 Audi 100 motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Audi has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 1993 Audi 100 vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your 100’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential 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 by taking into account your driving preferences, and mileage.

1993 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, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your 100’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Audi 100 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. 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 also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Audi 100 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
