Volkswagen Diesel Oil Change Service

Volkswagen Clear Lake Offers Diesel Oil Changes to Pasadena, Pearland, and Beyond

Volkswagen has made many vehicles with diesel engines. If you own one of these, it will need regular diesel oil changes. The technicians at Volkswagen Clear Lake are experts at changing the oil in diesel engines, and they’ll be glad to perform this service for you. They have years of experience and factory training, and they’ll use VW-approved diesel oil and an OEM oil filter to ensure that your Volkswagen continues functioning at its best.

How Is Diesel Oil Different from Conventional Oil?

Though diesel oil and engine oil are relatively similar, there are in fact a few differences. Diesel oil usually has a higher viscosity than oil meant for gas engines. If you were to put diesel oil in a gas engine, it might have difficulties moving properly. Diesel oil also tends to have more additives than conventional oil, in the form of detergents designed to keep the engine clean. Finally, diesel oil also has extra anti-wear agents, usually ZDDP. In order to deal with these anti-wear agents, diesel engines are equipped with more robust catalytic converters than the ones you’d find in gas engines.

How Often Do I Need To Change My Diesel Oil?

The good news for you is that diesel engines need oil changes less frequently than gas engines. A gasoline-powered engine with conventional oil should get an oil change every 3,000 miles, while synthetic oil can increase this time. A Volkswagen car powered by a TDI engine, on the other hand, could last up to 10,000 miles between oil changes. However, this is a maximum number, and your diesel-powered car may need oil changes more often. The frequency is based on several factors, from the kind of driving you do to the environment around you. Because of this, it’s best to consult a service advisor and get an estimate of how often an oil change will be needed.

Why Use VW-Approved Oil?

When you put new diesel oil in your Volkswagen, it’s best to use the real thing. Engine oil that has been approved by Volkswagen is guaranteed to have the same high quality that Volkswagen is known for. Unapproved oil might not be held to those same standards, and could negatively affect your engine.
