Located in Springfield, Virginia, our dealership caters to Volkswagen customers. We offer many different services that help drivers improve their Volkswagen vehicles at our dealership. One of the services that we offer, our diesel oil change service, helps to improve the condition of the VW TDI engine. Our Volkswagen diesel oil change gives us the opportunity to provide an essential routine service to our many customers.
A diesel oil change is when our technicians drain the oil from your vehicle's diesel engine and replace it with fresh oil. The new oil will improve your engine's running condition and help extend the engine's lifespan. When you bring your vehicle in for an oil change, our technicians will identify the oil that Volkswagen recommends for your vehicle and the amount of oil that your engine requires. They will then drain the old diesel oil completely out of your engine and remove the old oil filter from the engine. After replacing the oil filter with a new OEM replacement filter, our technicians will refill your engine with fresh diesel oil.
Diesel engine oil is different from the oil that gasoline engines use for a variety of reasons. Compared to the oil in gasoline engines, diesel engine oil burns differently, so it can cause problems if used in a gasoline engine. Diesel engine oil is capable of handling higher amounts of heat under tougher conditions. If placed in a gasoline engine, it will be tough for the engine to handle diesel oil because diesel oil tends to be thicker than the oil that is used for gasoline engines.
There are various oil change schedules that are recommended to drivers. The specific schedules that drivers should follow depend on the specific design of their engines. Some manufacturers design engines to use oil efficiently, extending the amount of time that drivers have between oil changes. To determine the diesel oil change schedule that will work the best for your vehicle, we recommend reading the information in your owner's manual. The manual includes a variety of important information, including an oil change schedule that is recommended by the manufacturer.
