When to Change 2008 Volkswagen Eos Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2008 Volkswagen Eos? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 changing your 2008 Eos’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Volkswagen-recommended oil change intervals, your Eos may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Volkswagen if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Volkswagen Eos. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2008 Volkswagen Eos?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2008 Volkswagen Eos motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Volkswagen has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 2008 Eos. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Eos’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, and mileage.

2008 Volkswagen Eos Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Volkswagen Eos engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Volkswagen Eos engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Volkswagen Eos oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Volkswagen Eos exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is 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, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
