1985 Audi Coupe Maintenance Schedule

What is the maintenance schedule for the 1985 Audi Coupe?

Here’s Why 1985 Audi Coupe Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Audi Coupe to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Coupe. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Coupe, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1985 Audi Coupe!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Audi themselves. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; 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 Coupe running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1985 Audi Coupe problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Audi Coupe Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1985 Audi Coupe for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 Coupe. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1985 Audi Coupe. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Audi Coupe battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Audi Coupe 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 help your 1985 Audi Coupe's engine run smoother. See Audi's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1985 Coupe 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. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1985 Audi Coupe.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Audi Coupe can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Audi Coupe steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Audi Coupe's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Audi Coupe 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!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Audi Coupe cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Audi Coupe radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1985 Audi Coupe maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

  • When should I have Audi Coupe alignment checked? 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 Coupe need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Audi Coupe? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Audi? 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 Coupe, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
