Your 2021 Arteon’s oil should be changed according to Volkswagen’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Arteon in the above table. Your Arteon may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of 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, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Volkswagen Arteon. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

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 2021 Volkswagen Arteon motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Volkswagen has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2021 Arteon.

During an oil change, a technician will change your Arteon's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Arteon by considering your driving habits, and odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2021 Volkswagen Arteon

  • Should I check my Volkswagen Arteon motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, 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 your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Volkswagen exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
