Volkswagen recommends changing your 2014 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, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Volkswagen recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, 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.

2014 Volkswagen Touareg Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Volkswagen Touareg engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Volkswagen Touareg engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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. Looks like it’s time for a professional 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.
