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.

Audi recommends having your 1994 Audi 90 Quattro’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your 90 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 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 areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Audi 90 Quattro. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1994 Audi 90 Quattro

  • Should I check my Audi 90 Quattro motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Audi 90 Quattro engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Audi oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Audi 90 Quattro exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
