Volkswagen recommends having your 2010 Volkswagen Tiguan’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Tiguan in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Tiguan may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine 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, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Volkswagen Tiguan. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2010 Volkswagen Tiguan

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Volkswagen Tiguan? 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, generate too much heat, and cause your Volkswagen Tiguan engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Volkswagen Tiguan oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Volkswagen exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
