How Often to Change 2017 Volkswagen Golf Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Volkswagen Golf’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 having your 2017 Volkswagen Golf’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Golf 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 car, 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, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Volkswagen Golf. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2017 Volkswagen Golf?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Volkswagen Golf. Volkswagen has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2017 Golf. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Golf's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Golf by considering your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2017 Volkswagen Golf Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Volkswagen Golf? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Golf’s engine to fail. 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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 exhaust smoke grayish 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, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
  • Where can I get Volkswagen Golf oil changes? You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care for your Volkswagen Golf oil change, oil filter replacement, oil leak diagnostics, and more! Our expert technicians will even advise the right oil for your vehicle.
  • Why is the oil light on in my Volkswagen Golf? If you’re overdue for an oil change, it might trigger your Volkswagen Golf oil change reminder light. If the oil pressure light is illuminated, it could be due to low engine oil, a failing oil pump, a malfunctioning oil pressure sensor, or a clogged oil filter.
  • Does my Golf's oil filter need to be changed during my oil change? It’s highly advised you replace the oil filter in your Volkswagen Golf every time you change the oil. After all, what’s the point of changing our oil if you’re just going to send fresh, clean engine oil through an already dirty filter?
