* Indicates a required field

Why do you need to change your oil?
When you change your vehicle's oil you are helping to regulate the engine's operating temperature, and ensure proper lubrication. As a vehicle engine operates, microscopic engine wear particles are picked up by the oil and transported to the filter. Fresh high-quality oil absorbs engine heat and is better able to absorb and transport engine wear particulate. 

Changing a vehicle's engine oil ensures that engine wear particles are removed. The changing of a vehicle's oil, hence the removal of engine "sludge" (degraded engine oil, engine wear particles, and dirt) helps to maintain peak engine operating efficiency, and fresh high quality engine oil is better able to reduce engine friction and absorb engine heat.

What is the role of engine oil in boosting fuel economy?
Basically motor oil is the lubricant for your car's engine. Old oil loses it's lubrication effect on the moving parts of your vehicle's engine. Therefore with more friction created by the moving engine parts while driving, results in a negative impact on fuel economy. 

The right motor oil that meets VW standards:
  • Helps keep your engine clean.
  • Helps your engine "turn over" more easily.
  • Provides optimal protection under more extreme driving conditions.
  • Coats and lubricates vital engine components helping reduce friction. 
  • Helps improve fuel economy by 5% or more.*
  • Allows engine parts to move more freely and helps reduce heat and overall wear.
  • Remains more stable at higher temperatures instead of beginning to break down early.
It's also important to remember that using the right oil conforms to the requirements of your factory warranty. So the next time you need an oil change, be sure to use the right oil that expressly complies with the VW quality standards required for your car's engine. 

Or better yet, have us do it. That way you'll be sure you're getting everything you need to stay genuine. * Based on fuel savings information found at      

What's the difference between synthetic and conventional motor oil?
 An oil change with Volkswagen-approved oil is one of the best things you can do for your VW. Just bring it in to the Volkswagen Certified Technicians at Larry H. Miller Volkswagen - we know what kind of oil change helps make your engine feel great. 

If you opt to change it yourself, Volkswagen recommends you use only the right motor oil. A lot of engine oils are labeled "synthetic." But because there is no generally accepted definition for the term, VW has developed oil quality standards to cut through the confusion. 

Many Volkswagen gas engines require oil that conforms to Volkswagen standard VW 502 00, while many diesel engines need oil that complies with VW 507 00. So the next time you need an oil change, be sure to use the right oil that expressly complies with the Volkswagen quality standards required for your car's engine.

Our dealership offers Volkswagen Service Xpress - most oil changes and other express service items in an hour or less. 

My Oil Pressure light is on! Help?
Don't ignore it. An oil pressure warning light (or low gauge reading) means one of two things: either your engine has dangerously low oil pressure (for a variety of reasons which we'll get to in a minute), or the oil pressure sending unit that triggers the warning light (or operates your gauge) has failed. The question here is whether you have a serious problem or a minor one.
  • First, do not keep driving if the oil warning light is on or your oil pressure gauge has dropped. Stop the engine, let it sit for a few minutes, then check the oil level.

  • Is the level low? If the oil level is down more than two quarts or no oil is showing on the dipstick, adding oil to bring the level back up to the full mark may be all that's necessary to make the light go out. Just keep your fingers crossed that you haven't damaged the engine from running it too low on oil. If you hear rapping or knocking noises the engine starts, you're too late. The damage is done and now you're stuck with the consequences.
Note: On some late model vehicles, the warning light will come on (or a message will appear) if a sensor in the oil pan detects a low oil level. The light is supposed to come on before the level gets low enough to cause any damage.

  • If your oil level was low, it means your engine is either leaking oil or burning it. Leaks can be fixed by finding and replacing leaky gaskets and seals. Sometimes the oil filter will leak if it isn't installed or tightened properly. But an oil burning problem means the valve guides, rings and/or cylinders are worn or damaged and more costly repairs are needed.

  • If the dipstick shows a full oil level, then low oil obviously isn't your problem. The oil pressure may be low because of a worn or broken oil pump, a plugged oil pickup screen in the engine's crankcase, possibly a plugged oil filter or excessive bearing wear. Or, the oil pressure may be fine but the oil pressure sending unit has failed. Further diagnosis will be required to determine what's wrong.
Should you attempt to drive your vehicle home or to a service facility?
It's risky. If the problem came on suddenly, your engine does not have a lot of miles on it (less than 60,000) and you noticed no unusual noises (no valve-train clattering or engine knocking), there's a good chance that all that's wrong is the sending unit. But, there's no way to know for sure without actually checking the engine's oil pressure with a gauge, or replacing the sending unit to see if a new unit makes the light go out. If the problem is only the sending unit, your engine still has oil pressure and you can continue to drive it until the sending unit can be replaced. But, if you're wrong you risk ruining your engine.

If you think you might have a low oil pressure or oil delivery problem because of a bad oil pump or one of the other problems we mentioned, do not drive your vehicle. Doing so only increases the probability of further engine damage. Have the vehicle towed to a service facility for repairs.
