Need more info about 2017 Volkswagen Jetta oil changes? Get the advice you need at 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.”

Your 2017 Jetta’s oil should be changed according to Volkswagen’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. 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 vehicle, or notice excess 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, 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 Jetta. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

2017 Volkswagen Jetta Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Volkswagen Jetta? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Jetta’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Volkswagen Jetta 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. 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 exhaust smoke gray 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
