Oil Change Q&A for Your 1987 Audi 4000 Quattro

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Audi 4000 Quattro? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Audi 4000 Quattro engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Audi 4000 Quattro 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Audi 4000 Quattro exhaust smoke grayish or blue? 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, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
