Volkswagen recommends changing your 2018 Tiguan’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. 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 an unusual amount of exhaust.

Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

2018 Volkswagen Tiguan Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Volkswagen Tiguan engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Volkswagen Tiguan engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
