Scheduled Maintenance for Your 1986 Audi Coupe

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1986 Audi Coupe?

What to Know About 1986 Audi Coupe Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Audi Coupe to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, 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. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1986 Audi Coupe!

Audi knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. 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. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Coupe running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1986 Audi Coupe problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Audi Coupe Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1986 Audi Coupe to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1986 Audi Coupe? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Coupe may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Audi Coupe battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Coupe stranded. Your Audi Coupe could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1986 Audi Coupe engine. See Audi's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1986 Coupe in the chart at the top 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 can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1986 Audi Coupe.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Audi Coupe can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! 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 (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. 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. Need a new Audi Coupe radiator? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1986 Audi Coupe maintenance.

Take an active role in maintaining your 1986 Audi Coupe. Get answers to common Audi Coupe maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Audi Coupe alignment checked? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 1986 Coupe is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When does my Audi Coupe need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Audi Coupe engines.
  •  Why are my Audi dashboard lights on? 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
