2020 Volkswagen Arteon Oil Change

How Often to Change 2020 Volkswagen Arteon Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Volkswagen Arteon’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Volkswagen recommends changing your 2020 Arteon’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Volkswagen-recommended oil change intervals, your Arteon may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Volkswagen recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Volkswagen Arteon. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2020 Volkswagen Arteon?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2020 Volkswagen Arteon motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Volkswagen has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2020 Arteon.

During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your Arteon’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your 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.

2020 Volkswagen Arteon Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Volkswagen Arteon? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Volkswagen Arteon engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Volkswagen oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Volkswagen Arteon spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
