How Often to Change 2013 Volkswagen Golf Oil

Need more info about 2013 Volkswagen Golf oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.”

Volkswagen recommends changing your 2013 Golf’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Golf 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, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of 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, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Volkswagen Golf. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2013 Volkswagen Golf Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Volkswagen Golf motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Volkswagen Golf engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Volkswagen Golf oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 Golf 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 old cylinder walls.
