How Often to Get 2010 Volkswagen Routan Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2010 Volkswagen Routan? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 2010 Routan’s oil should be changed according to Volkswagen’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Routan may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Volkswagen recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Volkswagen Routan. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Volkswagen Routan Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2010 Volkswagen Routan motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your Routan’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and mileage.

2010 Volkswagen Routan Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Volkswagen Routan motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Volkswagen Routan engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Volkswagen Routan oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Volkswagen Routan spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
