How Often to Get 2023 Volkswagen Taos Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Volkswagen Taos’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2023 Taos’s oil should be changed according to Volkswagen’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Volkswagen-recommended oil change intervals, your Taos may need an oil change if your check engine 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, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Volkswagen Taos. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2023 Volkswagen Taos Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Volkswagen Taos motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Volkswagen Taos engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Volkswagen Taos oil at home? 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 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 Taos spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
  • Where can I get Volkswagen Taos oil changes? Firestone Complete Auto Care performs Volkswagen Taos oil changes and more! Our technicians also replace oil filters, troubleshoot oil leaks, and advise on the right oil for your ride.
  • Why is the oil light on in my Volkswagen Taos? If you’re overdue for an oil change, it might trigger your Volkswagen Taos oil change reminder light. If the oil pressure light is illuminated, it could be due to low engine oil, a failing oil pump, a malfunctioning oil pressure sensor, or a clogged oil filter.
  • Should the oil filter be replaced when getting an oil change for my Volkswagen Taos? It's recommended that you replace your Volkswagen Taos oil filter with every oil change. Otherwise, you send fresh, clean motor oil through a dirty filter. That's like putting on muddy socks after a shower.
