When to Change 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Volkswagen recommends changing your 2017 Golf SportWagen’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Golf SportWagen may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Volkswagen Golf SportWagen. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2017 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen

  • What can low oil do to my Volkswagen Golf SportWagen engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Volkswagen Golf SportWagen 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 SportWagen 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Volkswagen Golf SportWagen spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
