How Often to Change 2014 Volkswagen Tiguan Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2014 Volkswagen Tiguan? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 2014 Tiguan’s oil should be changed according to Volkswagen’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Tiguan 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, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Volkswagen Tiguan. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Volkswagen Tiguan?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2014 Volkswagen Tiguan motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Volkswagen has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2014 Tiguan. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, one of our techs will change your Tiguan’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 easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and mileage.

2014 Volkswagen Tiguan Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Volkswagen Tiguan engine? 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 cause your Volkswagen Tiguan engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Volkswagen Tiguan oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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 Tiguan spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
