Vintage VW models were designed with conventional oil in mind. While some models may be able to make the switch to synthetic, certain other older engines are probably best left with conventional oil. If you do use conventional oil, be sure to come in for an oil change around every three months or every 3,000 miles. Ask us whether your older VW model’s engine is a good candidate for semi-synthetic oil, which offers some of the benefits of full synthetic.
If you drive a modern VW model, synthetic oil is a necessity. Since the year 2004, all-new Volkswagen engines have required synthetic oil to run. There’s a good reason for this, as well. Synthetic oil functions better in both extreme heat and extreme cold, it can run smoothly in the winter while standing up to the intense heat of combustion. Since it takes longer to break down under intense heat, synthetic oil doesn’t need to be changed as regularly as conventional oil you will only need to have it changed about once a year or every 10,000 miles. To top it all off, synthetic oil can help keep your engine cleaner than conventional oil. This is because it has fewer impurities and more detergent additives.
Diesel engines need a special kind of oil, one with higher viscosity and additional anti-wear additives. We carry genuine VW diesel oil at Faulkner Volkswagen Mechanicsburg.
