Need more info about 1993 Volkswagen Jetta oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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 1993 Volkswagen Jetta’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Jetta 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. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Volkswagen Jetta. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1993 Volkswagen Jetta Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Volkswagen Jetta engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Volkswagen Jetta engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Volkswagen Jetta oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. 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 Jetta exhaust smoke grayish or blue? 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. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
