The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Audi, your vehicle manufacturer.

Overview of Essential Audi A6 Quattro Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1997 Audi A6 Quattro to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your A6 Quattro’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1997 Audi A6 Quattro? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your A6 Quattro may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Audi A6 Quattro battery. 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 A6 Quattro) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Audi A6 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 help your 1997 Audi A6 Quattro's engine run smoother. To learn how often Audi recommends you have the oil changed in your 1997 A6 Quattro, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1997 Audi A6 Quattro? We can help with that, too!

This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Audi A6 Quattro's steering system require regular maintenance.
