How Often to Change 2016 Volkswagen Eos Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2016 Volkswagen Eos? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 having your 2016 Volkswagen Eos’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Eos may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Volkswagen recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, 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’s the Right Type of Oil for 2016 Volkswagen Eos?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Volkswagen Eos. Volkswagen has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2016 Eos. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your Eos’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Eos by considering your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2016 Volkswagen Eos Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Volkswagen Eos engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Volkswagen Eos engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Volkswagen oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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? 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
