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.”

Your 2002 EuroVan’s oil should be changed according to Volkswagen’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your EuroVan may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Volkswagen if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Volkswagen EuroVan. 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.

2002 Volkswagen EuroVan Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Volkswagen EuroVan motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Volkswagen EuroVan engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Volkswagen EuroVan 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Volkswagen EuroVan exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
