When to Change 2007 Volkswagen GTI Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Volkswagen GTI’s oil changed? Turn to 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 having your 2007 Volkswagen GTI’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your GTI 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 may also need an oil change more frequently than Volkswagen recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Volkswagen GTI. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2007 Volkswagen GTI Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Volkswagen GTI engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your GTI’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Volkswagen GTI oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Volkswagen GTI spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
  • Who does Volkswagen GTI oil changes? Firestone Complete Auto Care performs Volkswagen GTI oil changes and more! Our technicians also replace oil filters, troubleshoot oil leaks, and advise on the right oil for your ride.
  • Why is the oil light on in my Volkswagen GTI? The oil change light in your Volkswagen GTI could be triggered by an overdue oil change. However, if the oil pressure light is on, you may be dealing with low engine oil, a failing oil pump, a clogged oil filter, or a malfunctioning oil pressure sensor.
  • Do I need to change my GTI's oil filter when I get an oil change? You should replace your Volkswagen GTI during each oil change. The filter captures debris and contaminants to help keep your oil clean, which means the filter gets dirty. If you skip replacing the filter, you’ll contaminate your new oil with the dirty filter.
