Oil Changes for 2019 Volkswagen Arteon

When to Change 2019 Volkswagen Arteon Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2019 Volkswagen Arteon? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Volkswagen recommends changing your 2019 Arteon’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Arteon may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Volkswagen if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Volkswagen Arteon. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Volkswagen Arteon Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2019 Volkswagen Arteon motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Volkswagen has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2019 Arteon. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your Arteon's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2019 Volkswagen Arteon Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Volkswagen Arteon? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Volkswagen Arteon engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Volkswagen oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Volkswagen Arteon spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
