How Often to Change 2013 Volkswagen Touareg Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Volkswagen Touareg’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Volkswagen recommends changing your 2013 Touareg’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Touareg may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Volkswagen recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Volkswagen Touareg. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2013 Volkswagen Touareg Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Volkswagen Touareg motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Volkswagen Touareg engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Volkswagen Touareg oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 Touareg exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
