When to Change 1999 Volkswagen Cabrio Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Volkswagen Cabrio’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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 having your 1999 Volkswagen Cabrio’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Cabrio 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, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Volkswagen recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Volkswagen Cabrio. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1999 Volkswagen Cabrio Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Volkswagen Cabrio motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Cabrio’s engine to fail. 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. 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 Cabrio exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
