Engine oil keeps your Volkswagen model’s engine lubricated, which prevents severe damage. However, oil doesn’t last forever — which is why regular oil changes are necessary. When your VW needs its next oil change, we invite you to visit us at #1 Cochran Volkswagen of South Hills, serving Carnegie and Castle Shannon, PA. Learn more about our oil change services here, and then come visit!
If you drive a vintage Volkswagen model, it may still use conventional oil. We carry genuine VW conventional oil at #1 Cochran Volkswagen of South Hills, but you may want to make the switch to synthetic: with conventional oil, you will have to have an oil change every 3,000 miles or so.
Volkswagen models made since 2004 require synthetic oil due to their advanced engine structure that maximizes both power and efficiency. Synthetic oil lasts much longer than conventional oil; you will only have to have an oil change around every 10,000 miles or once a year (whichever comes first). Synthetic oil also better lubricates your engine and can help keep it cleaner.
Making the switch from conventional to synthetic oil? Consider using a synthetic blend to ease your VW into it.
The engine oil used for diesel engines like the VW TDI engine is different from regular oil. Diesel oil tends to have a higher viscosity. In addition, diesel engines require oil that has added anti-wear agents that would damage the catalytic converter of a gas engine.
