2020 Volkswagen Jetta Oil Change Service

How Often to Get 2020 Volkswagen Jetta Oil Changes

Need more info about 2020 Volkswagen Jetta oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.

Your 2020 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. Outside of Volkswagen-recommended oil change intervals, your Jetta may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of 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 long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Volkswagen Jetta?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2020 Volkswagen Jetta motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Volkswagen has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2020 Jetta. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your Jetta’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential 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 Jetta by considering your driving style, and odometer.

2020 Volkswagen Jetta Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Volkswagen Jetta engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine 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.
  • How hard is it to change Volkswagen Jetta 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. 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. 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 worn cylinder walls.
