Volkswagen recommends having your 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Atlas Cross Sport in the above table. Outside of Volkswagen-recommended oil change intervals, your Atlas Cross Sport may need an oil change if your check engine 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 terrain, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport. 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport

  • Should I check my Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport 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 Atlas Cross Sport 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? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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 Atlas Cross Sport exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
