Volkswagen Oil Change Near Boston MA
Oil Changes for Volkswagen Vehicles
Maintaining your vehicle’s oil is imperative in order to ensure a long life for your Volkswagen. Crude oils act as a lubricant to reduce wear on all moving parts of your vehicle’s engine and also cleans, inhibits corrosion, improves sealing, and cools the engine by carrying heat away from moving parts. Oil changes keep your car running longer allowing you to avoid costly repairs. If you don’t change your vehicle’s oil, dirt and grime can accumulate in the oil causing the dirty oil to bypass the filter. This could lead to sludge buildup in the engine which can hurt your vehicle’s overall health. It is important to keep up with your Volkswagen maintenance schedule and to change your oil every 10,000 miles or 12 months.

How Often Should I Change My Oil?
Volkswagen vehicles are very efficient when it comes to oil use. It is recommended by VW that you get your vehicle’s oil changed every 10,000 miles, or when your vehicle begins to let you know. Volkswagen uses oil life measurement which will begin to warn you every 100 miles beginning at 1000 miles before the oil change is due, and it is very important that you take note of this. Some other factors can speed up this time span and should be considered. These factors are:
- Frequently carrying heavy loads
- Idling extensively or driving at low speeds for long distances
- Driving in dusty conditions
- Driving off-road frequently
- Your engine is old and burns oil
Common Motor Oil Types:
Basic motor oil which protects against deposit build up, viscosity break down and wear over time.
High Mileage Oil
Best used in engines with 75,000 miles or more. Contains a special blend of additives to help with the general wear and tear that older engines can be prone to.
(Most used and recommended by VW)
Synthetic oil is the recommended type for nearly every Volkswagen. It helps to prolong the engine’s life, and offers better protection at higher temperatures. This is generally the highest protection among all other oil types.
