Audi recommends having your 1990 Audi 80’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 80 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, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Audi recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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’s the Right Type of Oil for 1990 Audi 80?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Audi 80.

You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your 80 by considering your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1990 Audi 80 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Audi 80? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Audi 80 engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Audi 80 oil at home? 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 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 80 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
