2021 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, 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 engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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 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, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
  • Who can change the oil on my Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport? Firestone Complete Auto Care performs Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport oil changes and more! Our technicians also replace oil filters, troubleshoot oil leaks, and advise on the right oil for your ride.
  • What can cause the oil light on my Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport to illuminate? If you’re overdue for an oil change, it might trigger your Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport oil change reminder light. If the oil pressure light is illuminated, it could be due to low engine oil, a failing oil pump, a malfunctioning oil pressure sensor, or a clogged oil filter.
  • Do I need to change my Atlas Cross Sport's oil filter when I get an oil change? Every time you change the oil in your Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport, you should also replace the oil filter. Otherwise, you risk contaminating your brand-new oil with the dirt and debris built up in your old filter.
