Your 2013 Eos’s oil should be changed according to Volkswagen’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Eos may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust.

More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Volkswagen Eos. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2013 Volkswagen Eos Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Volkswagen Eos engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Eos’s engine to fail. 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 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
