1998 Audi A4 Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Audi A4 Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you want your 1998 Audi A4’s engine to last for a long time. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your A4’s power on the road. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Audi's recommendations, you invest in your A4's long-term health and engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Audi A4

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1998 Audi A4. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. The second service focuses on your A4's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your A4’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your A4 can determine what kind of service it needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

1998 Audi A4 Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my Audi A4 spark plugs fail? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Audi’s recommendations.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Audi A4? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my A4 engine? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
