How often should I service my 1983 Audi 5000?
Take care of your Audi 5000 and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your 5000 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine 5000 maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1983 Audi 5000!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Audi, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; 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 5000 running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1983 Audi 5000 problems in the future.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1983 Audi 5000 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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 5000. 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.
Could your 1983 Audi 5000 be ready for a new battery? 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Audi 5000 battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Audi 5000 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1983 Audi 5000 running newer, longer. See Audi's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1983 5000 in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1983 Audi 5000.
