Oil Change Q&A for Your 1988 Audi 90 Quattro

  • What can low oil do to my Audi 90 Quattro engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your 90 Quattro’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Audi 90 Quattro 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Audi 90 Quattro 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
