2015 Volkswagen Tiguan Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Volkswagen Tiguan engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Volkswagen Tiguan engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Volkswagen Tiguan 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. 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 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
