When to Change 2015 Volkswagen Touareg Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Volkswagen Touareg’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.”

Your 2015 Touareg’s oil should be changed according to Volkswagen’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Volkswagen if you regularly 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. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2015 Volkswagen Touareg?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2015 Volkswagen Touareg motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Volkswagen has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2015 Touareg. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your Touareg’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Touareg by considering your driving preferences, weather and road conditions,

2015 Volkswagen Touareg Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Volkswagen Touareg? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Touareg’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Volkswagen oil on my own? 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Volkswagen Touareg spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
