How often should I service my 1985 Audi 4000 Quattro?

Here’s Why 1985 Audi 4000 Quattro Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Audi 4000 Quattro and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 4000 Quattro. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 4000 Quattro, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1985 Audi 4000 Quattro!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Audi themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 4000 Quattro running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 1985 Audi 4000 Quattro problems.

Overview of Essential Audi 4000 Quattro Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1985 Audi 4000 Quattro to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your 4000 Quattro's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1985 Audi 4000 Quattro be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Audi 4000 Quattro battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Audi 4000 Quattro could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1985 Audi 4000 Quattro running newer, longer. See Audi's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1985 4000 Quattro in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1985 Audi 4000 Quattro.

Routine upkeep for your Audi 4000 Quattro suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones.

These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Audi 4000 Quattro's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Audi 4000 Quattro maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Audi 4000 Quattro cooling, heating, and climate control system.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Audi 4000 Quattro? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When does my Audi 4000 Quattro need high mileage oil? If your Audi 4000 Quattro has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Audi dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Audi 4000 Quattro to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
