How often should I service my 1987 Audi 5000?
Take care of your Audi 5000 and it'll take care of you. With proactive 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? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 5000, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1987 Audi 5000!
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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 5000 perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1987 Audi 5000 problems in the future.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1987 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 5000’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.
Could your 1987 Audi 5000 be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. 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 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 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1987 Audi 5000 engine. To learn how often Audi recommends you have the oil changed in your 1987 5000, 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. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1987 Audi 5000.
Routine upkeep for your Audi 5000 suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Audi 5000 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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Audi 5000's steering and suspension system.
If you skip recommended Audi 5000 services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.
