1985 Audi 5000 Oil Change

How Often to Change 1985 Audi 5000 Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Audi 5000’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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 having your 1985 Audi 5000’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your 5000 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Audi 5000. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

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

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Audi 5000. Audi has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1985 5000. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your 5000’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your 5000 by considering your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1985 Audi 5000

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Audi 5000? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Audi 5000 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Audi 5000 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Audi 5000 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
