Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1997 Audi A8 Quattro? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”
Your 1997 A8 Quattro’s oil should be changed according to Audi’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your A8 Quattro in the above table. Outside of Audi-recommended oil change intervals, your A8 Quattro may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Audi recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Audi A8 Quattro. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.
Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1997 Audi A8 Quattro motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Audi has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 1997 Audi A8 Quattro vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your A8 Quattro’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your A8 Quattro by taking into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.
