What to Know About 1998 Audi A4 Quattro Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Audi A4 Quattro to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your A4 Quattro. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get A4 Quattro maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1998 Audi A4 Quattro!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Audi, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your A4 Quattro running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1998 Audi A4 Quattro problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Audi A4 Quattro Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1998 Audi A4 Quattro to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your A4 Quattro. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1998 Audi A4 Quattro. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your A4 Quattro may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Audi A4 Quattro battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty A4 Quattro) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Audi A4 Quattro won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1998 Audi A4 Quattro running newer, longer. To learn how often Audi recommends you have the oil changed in your 1998 A4 Quattro, check out the information table at the beginning of this page.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Audi A4 Quattro? You know your Audi A4 Quattro 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 should I use high mileage oil in my Audi A4 Quattro? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Audi A4 Quattro engines.
  • Can Audi dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Audi A4 Quattro to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
