How Often to Change 2014 Volkswagen Routan Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Volkswagen Routan’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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.

Volkswagen recommends having your 2014 Volkswagen Routan’s motor oil changed at regular 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Volkswagen recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Volkswagen Routan. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2014 Volkswagen Routan?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Volkswagen Routan. Volkswagen has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2014 Volkswagen Routan vehicles. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Routan’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, weather and road conditions,

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2014 Volkswagen Routan

  • What can low oil do to my Volkswagen Routan engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Volkswagen Routan engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Volkswagen Routan oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Volkswagen exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
