How Often to Get 2006 Volkswagen Touareg Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Volkswagen Touareg’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Volkswagen recommends changing your 2006 Touareg’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Touareg in the above table. Outside of Volkswagen-recommended oil change intervals, your Touareg may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds 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, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Volkswagen Touareg. 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Volkswagen Touareg Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2006 Volkswagen Touareg motor oil: either synthetic or conventional.

You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Touareg by considering your driving preferences, and odometer.

2006 Volkswagen Touareg Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Volkswagen Touareg engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Volkswagen Touareg engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Volkswagen Touareg oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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. 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, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
