After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 1989 80 Quattro’s oil should be changed according to Audi’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your 80 Quattro 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 notice excess 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, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Audi 80 Quattro. 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 80 Quattro?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1989 Audi 80 Quattro motor oil: either synthetic or conventional.

In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your 80 Quattro’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your 80 Quattro by considering your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1989 Audi 80 Quattro Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Audi 80 Quattro motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your 80 Quattro’s 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? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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 exhaust smoke gray 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
