Synthetic vs Conventional Oil change
The Importance of VW Oil Changes
The oil that flows through your engine system does two very important jobs in order to keep everything running smoothly under your front hood. First, oil is in charge of lubricating the engine system. There are many fast moving parts in the engine that can cause dangerous amounts of friction when they’re not properly lubricated.
The second job of the engine oil is to keep the engine clean. While it’s flowing over the many parts of the engine system to lubricate them, it’s also picking up all types of debris.
Common Signs You Need an Oil Change
Typically, your Volkswagen should have its conventional oil changed about every 5,000 miles or every six months. Volkswagen vehicles that take synthetic oil can go around 10,000 to 15,000 miles, or a year, between oil changes.
However, if your Volkswagen needs to have its oil changed sooner than that, it’ll let you know with these common signs and symptoms:
- The “check engine” light is on
- Noticeably reduced fuel economy
- Engine is making knocking or grinding sounds
- Unusual amount of exhaust smoke
- Smell of burnt oil inside the cabin
If you’re experiencing one or more of these things, it’s more than likely that your oil needs to be changed sooner rather than later.
