1990 Volkswagen Corrado Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Volkswagen Corrado engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Corrado’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Volkswagen Corrado oil at home? 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Volkswagen Corrado spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. 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.
