2009 Audi A8 Quattro Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Audi A8 Quattro Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it could be time for a new way of doing things, particularly if you want to keep your 2009 Audi A8 Quattro in tip-top shape. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your A8 Quattro. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Audi's recommendations, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your A8 Quattro’s engine running smoother, longer.

Audi A8 Quattro Engine Tune-Up Services

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Audi A8 Quattro engine tune-up services. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. The second service focuses on your A8 Quattro's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your A8 Quattro. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your A8 Quattro: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2009 Audi A8 Quattros

  • Will it hurt my Audi A8 Quattro to drive with old spark plugs? 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 does a puddle underneath my Audi A8 Quattro mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Audi A8 Quattro. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Audi A8 Quattro 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.
