Your Guide to 1998 Audi A8 Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Audi A8 and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your A8 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get A8 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 1998 Audi A8 maintenance schedule!

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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your A8 perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1998 Audi A8 problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Audi A8 Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1998 Audi A8 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your A8's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1998 Audi A8 be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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 A8 battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your A8 stranded. Your Audi A8 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1998 Audi A8 running newer, longer. To learn how often Audi recommends you have the oil changed in your 1998 A8, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1998 Audi A8.

Routine upkeep for your Audi A8 suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle.

To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Audi A8's steering and suspension system.

1998 Audi A8 Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 1998 Audi A8. Get answers to common Audi A8 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Audi A8? 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 should I use high mileage oil in my Audi A8? If your Audi A8 has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Audi? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Audi A8 in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
