Here’s Why 2004 Audi A4 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Audi A4, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your A4. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine A4 maintenance. Just follow your 2004 Audi A4 maintenance schedule!

Audi knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. 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. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your A4 perform better, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2004 Audi A4 problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Audi A4

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2004 Audi A4 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your A4's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2004 Audi A4 be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Audi A4 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) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Audi A4 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 help your 2004 Audi A4's engine run smoother. See Audi's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2004 A4 in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2004 Audi A4.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Audi A4 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. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Audi A4 steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Audi A4's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Audi A4 maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.

Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Audi A4’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.

2004 Audi A4 Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2004 Audi A4. Get answers to common Audi A4 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Audi A4 alignment checked? You know your Audi A4 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 switch my Audi A4 to high mileage oil? 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 engines.
  •  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 A4, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
