2012 Audi A4 Quattro Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Audi A4 Quattro

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you want your 2012 Audi A4 Quattro’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your A4 Quattro. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Audi, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your A4 Quattro’s engine running smoother, longer.

Engine Tune-Up for Audi A4 Quattro

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2012 Audi A4 Quattro. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your A4 Quattro. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. The third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on your A4 Quattro's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your A4 Quattro's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

2012 Audi A4 Quattro Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Audi A4 Quattro to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Spark plugs are small but mighty. The spark of electricity that the plug emits across a small gap creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without that spark, your car won't start.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my A4 Quattro? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Audi A4 Quattro. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my A4 Quattro engine? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
