What is the maintenance schedule for the 1984 Audi Quattro?
When it comes to your Audi Quattro, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Quattro has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Quattro maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1984 Audi Quattro!
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; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Quattro's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1984 Audi Quattro problems later.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1984 Audi Quattro for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Quattro’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.
Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1984 Audi Quattro. 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Quattro may need a replacement battery sooner. 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 Quattro battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Quattro stranded. Your Audi Quattro 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 1984 Audi Quattro 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 1984 Quattro. 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 1984 Audi Quattro.
Periodic service to the steering system in your Audi Quattro can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions.

You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Audi Quattro suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Audi Quattro's steering system require regular maintenance.
If you skip recommended Audi Quattro 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 Quattro cooling, heating, and climate control system.
