2018 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Volkswagen Golf SportWagen motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Volkswagen Golf SportWagen engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Volkswagen Golf SportWagen oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Volkswagen Golf SportWagen exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
