What to Know About 2002 Audi A6 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Audi A6 to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your A6 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your A6, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2002 Audi A6!

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 A6 running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2002 Audi A6 problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Audi A6 Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2002 Audi A6 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your A6. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2002 Audi A6? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Audi A6 battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty A6) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Audi A6 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2002 Audi A6's engine run smoother. See Audi's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2002 A6 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. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2002 Audi A6? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Audi A6 can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Audi A6 suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Audi A6's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Audi A6 services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Audi A6 engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Audi A6 radiator? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2002 Audi A6 maintenance and repairs.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

Questions About 2002 Audi A6 Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2002 Audi A6. Get answers to common Audi A6 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Audi A6? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When does my Audi A6 need 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 A6 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 A6, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
