How often should I service my 1985 Audi 4000?
You want your Audi 4000 to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your 4000 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get 4000 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 1985 Audi 4000 maintenance schedule!
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 oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 4000 running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 1985 Audi 4000 problems.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1985 Audi 4000 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 4000. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.
Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1985 Audi 4000? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 4000 may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Audi 4000 battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 4000 stranded. Your Audi 4000 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1985 Audi 4000 engine. To learn how often Audi recommends you have the oil changed in your 1985 4000, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1985 Audi 4000.
