How Often to Get 2019 Volkswagen Jetta Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2019 Volkswagen Jetta? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2019 Jetta’s oil should be changed according to Volkswagen’s recommended oil change 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 engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Volkswagen recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Volkswagen Jetta. 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 2019 Volkswagen Jetta?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2019 Volkswagen Jetta motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Volkswagen has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 2019 Jetta.

You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Jetta by considering your driving style, and odometer.

2019 Volkswagen Jetta Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Volkswagen Jetta? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Volkswagen Jetta engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Volkswagen oil on my own? 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Volkswagen Jetta 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
