Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes.

Overview of Essential Audi Coupe Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1987 Audi Coupe for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. 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 1987 Audi Coupe. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Audi Coupe 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty Coupe) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Audi Coupe won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1987 Audi Coupe running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1987 Coupe. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1987 Audi Coupe? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Audi Coupe suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Audi Coupe suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement.

Take an active role in maintaining your 1987 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? 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 Coupe? 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.
  • Can Audi dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Audi Coupe to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
