1997 Audi A8 Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Enhance Audi A8 Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 1997 Audi A8 in tip-top shape. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your A8’s power on the road. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you follow the guidelines specified by Audi for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your A8's long-term health and engine performance.

Audi A8 Engine Tune-Up Services

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Audi A8 engine tune-up services. The first 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'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. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your A8: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Questions About 1997 Audi A8 Engine Tune-Ups

  • What happens if my Audi A8 spark plugs fail? 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 should I do if I see leaks under my A8? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Audi A8 engine? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
