When to Change 1986 Audi Coupe Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Audi Coupe’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Audi recommends changing your 1986 Coupe’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Coupe in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Coupe may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Audi if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Audi Coupe. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1986 Audi Coupe Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Audi Coupe? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Audi Coupe engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Audi Coupe oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Audi exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
