Oil Change Q&A for Your 2009 Volkswagen Beetle

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Volkswagen Beetle? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Volkswagen Beetle engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Volkswagen Beetle oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 Beetle exhaust smoke grayish 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, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
