How Often to Change 1992 Audi 80 Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1992 Audi 80? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 1992 80’s oil should be changed according to Audi’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Audi-recommended oil change intervals, your 80 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Audi recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

1992 Audi 80 Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Audi 80 engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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 damaged cylinder walls.
