How Often to Get 2019 Volkswagen Passat Oil Changes

Need more info about 2019 Volkswagen Passat oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. 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 Passat’s oil should be changed according to Volkswagen’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Passat may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds 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, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Volkswagen Passat. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2019 Volkswagen Passat?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2019 Volkswagen Passat motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Volkswagen has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2019 Passat. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Passat’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Passat by taking into account your driving preferences, and odometer.

2019 Volkswagen Passat Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Volkswagen Passat? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Volkswagen Passat engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it 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 figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
