Volkswagen recommends having your 2007 Volkswagen Passat’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Passat in the above table.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2007 Volkswagen Passat

  • Should I check my Volkswagen Passat motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Passat’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 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 changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Volkswagen Passat exhaust smoke grayish or blue? 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
