What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1985 Audi Quattro?

Here’s Why 1985 Audi Quattro Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Audi Quattro to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your Quattro could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. 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. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1985 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. 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, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Quattro perform better, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1985 Audi Quattro problems later.

Overview of Essential Audi Quattro Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1985 Audi Quattro 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. 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.

Could your 1985 Audi Quattro be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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 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 1985 Audi Quattro engine. To learn how often Audi recommends you have the oil changed in your 1985 Quattro, check out the information table at the beginning 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'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1985 Audi Quattro.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Audi Quattro? You know your Audi Quattro better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Audi Quattro? 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 Quattro engines.
  • Can Audi dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Audi Quattro in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
