Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2017 Volkswagen Touareg? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires.

Volkswagen recommends having your 2017 Volkswagen Touareg’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Touareg may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Volkswagen if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2017 Volkswagen Touareg

  • Should I check my Volkswagen Touareg motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Volkswagen Touareg engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, 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. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
