Volkswagen recommends changing your 1987 Quantum’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Quantum may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Volkswagen Quantum. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1987 Volkswagen Quantum Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Volkswagen Quantum engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Quantum’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 Quantum 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
