Audi recommends changing your 1987 4000’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 4000 in the above table. Your 4000 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Audi recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Audi 4000. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1987 Audi 4000 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Audi 4000? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Audi 4000 engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Audi oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Audi 4000 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. 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 worn cylinder walls.
