Oil Change Q&A for Your 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Volkswagen Golf SportWagen? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Golf SportWagen’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.

You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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? 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, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
