When to Change 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Limited Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Volkswagen Tiguan Limited’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond 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 changing your 2018 Tiguan Limited’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Volkswagen-recommended oil change intervals, your Tiguan Limited may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of 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, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Volkswagen Tiguan Limited. 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.

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Limited Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Volkswagen Tiguan Limited engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Volkswagen Tiguan Limited engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Volkswagen oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform 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. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
