1989 Audi 90 Maintenance Schedule

What to Know About 1989 Audi 90 Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Audi 90 and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your 90 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 90, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1989 Audi 90!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Audi, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your 90's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1989 Audi 90 problems.

Overview of Essential Audi 90 Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1989 Audi 90 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your 90's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1989 Audi 90 be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 90 may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Audi 90 battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 90 stranded. Your Audi 90 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1989 Audi 90 engine. To learn how often Audi recommends you have the oil changed in your 1989 90, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1989 Audi 90? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Audi 90 steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Audi 90 suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Audi 90's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Audi 90 services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Audi 90 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Audi 90 radiator? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1989 Audi 90 maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

1989 Audi 90 Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 1989 Audi 90. Get answers to common Audi 90 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Audi 90? You know your Audi 90 better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When does my Audi 90 need high mileage oil? If your Audi 90 has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  •  Why are my Audi dashboard lights on? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Audi 90, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
