It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Volkswagen recommends having your 1993 Volkswagen Cabriolet’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Cabriolet may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Volkswagen Cabriolet. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1993 Volkswagen Cabriolet

  • What can low oil do to my Volkswagen Cabriolet engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Cabriolet’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 Cabriolet oil at home? 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Volkswagen exhaust smoke gray 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, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
