1983 Audi 5000 Oil Change

How Often to Get 1983 Audi 5000 Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Audi 5000’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Audi recommends changing your 1983 5000’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Audi-recommended oil change intervals, your 5000 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Audi if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Audi 5000. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Audi 5000?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1983 Audi 5000 motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Audi has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1983 5000. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your 5000’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and mileage.

1983 Audi 5000 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Audi 5000? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Audi 5000 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Audi oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Audi 5000 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
