Your vehicle deserves fresh, clean, and high-quality oil, and you deserve an oil change that is professional, efficient, and affordable. For Volkswagen oil changes near Arlington, VA, visit us at Sheehy Volkswagen of Springfield!
Are you wondering if your Volkswagen is ready for its next oil change? An easy way to determine when you should change the oil in your Volkswagen is the amount of time and number of miles since getting the last one. If your Volkswagen is using conventional oil, you should plan on getting an oil change every 3,000 miles or 3 months, whichever arrives first. If your Volkswagen uses synthetic oil, which is commonly found in modern Volkswagen vehicles, then you should get your oil changed every 5,000 to 7,500 miles or every 6 months.
Don’t have records on your last oil change? Can’t remember approximately when you stopped by to get fresh oil? Don’t worry – there’s a fast and simple way to check your oil right at home. Under the hood, look for the oil dipstick, which has a handle that is usually yellow or orange in color. Pull out the dipstick and clean it with a paper towel, then reinsert it all the way. Remove it once more and take a look at the level and color. Regarding the oil level, your oil should be between the top and lowest notches. For color, take note of how dark it is. The darker the oil, the dirtier and less effective it will be at lubricating your engine. If your oil level is low or your oil is dirty, it’s time for an oil change.
