Checking the Oil in 2017 Volkswagen Models

Volkswagen is lauded for its top-notch German engineering and long-lasting quality. However, in order to enjoy that quality for many years, your Volkswagen requires regular maintenance. One of the easiest maintenance tasks for your 2017 Volkswagen model is checking its oil.

How Often Should I Check the Oil in My 2017 Volkswagen Model?

We recommend checking your 2017 Volkswagen model’s oil once a month. It is important to do this in order to keep your engine running smoothly and correctly. We know that life can get hectic between work and lugging the kids around, so we suggest choosing a specific day each month (such as the third Saturday) and devote an hour or two to basic car maintenance.

Steps for Checking Your 2017 Volkswagen Model’s Oil

  1. Open the hood of your Volkswagen.
  2. Find the dipstick of the oil tank and pull it out.
  3. Using a paper towel or cloth rag, wipe the dipstick clean and stick it back in its designated place.
  4. Pull the dipstick out again and read the oil level. The end of the dipstick will have two markings, one for full (F) and one for low (L). If the engine oil is low, add more to the tank.
