When to Change 2011 Volkswagen Eos Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Volkswagen Eos’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Volkswagen recommends having your 2011 Volkswagen Eos’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Eos may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Volkswagen recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Volkswagen Eos. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Volkswagen Eos?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2011 Volkswagen Eos motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Volkswagen has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2011 Eos. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your Eos's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Eos by considering your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2011 Volkswagen Eos

  • Should I check my Volkswagen Eos motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Volkswagen Eos 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 Eos oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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. 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 worn cylinder walls.
