When to Change 2017 Volkswagen Golf R Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2017 Volkswagen Golf R? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 2017 Golf R’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Volkswagen-recommended oil change intervals, your Golf R may need an oil change 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 terrain, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Volkswagen Golf R. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2017 Volkswagen Golf R

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Volkswagen Golf R? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Volkswagen Golf R engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Volkswagen Golf R 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 changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Volkswagen exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
