1987 Volkswagen Scirocco Oil Change Service

How Often to Get 1987 Volkswagen Scirocco Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Volkswagen Scirocco’s oil changed? 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.”

Volkswagen recommends having your 1987 Volkswagen Scirocco’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Volkswagen-recommended oil change intervals, your Scirocco may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle 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 drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Volkswagen Scirocco. 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 Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Volkswagen Scirocco?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1987 Volkswagen Scirocco motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Volkswagen has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 1987 Scirocco. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Scirocco’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check 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 Scirocco by taking into account your driving preferences, weather and road conditions,

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1987 Volkswagen Scirocco

  • Should I check my Volkswagen Scirocco motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Scirocco’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 engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 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. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
