How Often to Get 1989 Audi 80 Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1989 Audi 80? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.”

Your 1989 80’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 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 car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Audi recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Audi 80. 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 Type of Oil Does My Audi 80 Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1989 Audi 80 motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Audi has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 1989 80. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your 80's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your 80 by taking into account your driving preferences, and mileage.

1989 Audi 80 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Audi 80? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Audi 80 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Audi 80 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Audi exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
