What is the maintenance schedule for the 1986 Audi 4000?

What to Know About 1986 Audi 4000 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Audi 4000 to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, 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. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 4000, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1986 Audi 4000 maintenance schedule!

Audi knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. 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 1986 Audi 4000 problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Audi 4000

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1986 Audi 4000 and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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 1986 Audi 4000? 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. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty 4000) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Audi 4000 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1986 Audi 4000 engine. To learn how often Audi recommends you have the oil changed in your 1986 4000, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1986 Audi 4000.

Routine upkeep for your Audi 4000 suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Audi 4000 steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Audi 4000's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Audi 4000 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!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Audi 4000 engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Audi 4000 radiator? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it.

  • When should I have Audi 4000 alignment checked? You know your Audi 4000 better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I switch my Audi 4000 to high mileage oil? If your Audi 4000 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 I ignore dashboard lights on my Audi? 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 to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
