Audi recommends having your 1986 Audi 4000 Quattro’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your 4000 Quattro may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of 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, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Audi 4000 Quattro. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1986 Audi 4000 Quattro motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Audi has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 1986 Audi 4000 Quattro vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, 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 4000 Quattro’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your 4000 Quattro by considering your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1986 Audi 4000 Quattro Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Audi 4000 Quattro? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your 4000 Quattro’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Audi oil on my own? 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 changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Audi exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
