Volkswagen Diesel Engine Oil Change in South Charleston, WV

Regular oil changes are an indispensable part of any conventional, combustion-powered automobile’s regular care and maintenance. This is no less true of a diesel-powered Volkswagen vehicle. The VW TDI engine in particular is the first turbocharged diesel engine used in any passenger vehicle. The Volkswagen brand first delivered this revolutionary product to market in 1978, and it has been a solid performer ever since, as admirers of this unique power-plant will tell you.

Volkswagen Diesel Oil Change: Conventional VS Synthetic

While diesel engines require a specific type of oil change, there are some similarities to oil changes taken by non-diesel engines. One of those similarities is the fact that conventional and synthetic oil types are available for both. Many drivers are understandably curious about the differences between conventional and synthetic oil and want to know which is best for their automobiles.

  • Conventional diesel oil change: This type of oil change utilizes engine oil that is made from 100% petroleum-based ingredients. This type of engine oil has been in existence for almost as long as the combustion engine has been in existence. As such, it is a time tested and proven way to protect your engine from heat, debris, and corrosion. A conventional diesel oil change will last on average for between 3,000 to 3,500 miles or around three months.
  • Synthetic diesel oil change: Synthetic diesel engine oil is made from materials that have been designed and fabricated in a laboratory. This type of engine oil is more resistant to heat, provides superior protection from abrasion, and is longer lasting than conventional diesel oil. Synthetic oil is more expensive than conventional oil, but automotive experts believe that because it is longer lasting and provides superior protection, synthetic oil changes will save you money in the long run.

What’s The Best Type of Diesel Engine Oil Change for My Car?

Vehicles that are designed to take synthetic oil tend to be higher performing than those which do not. However, with experience, many mechanics have learned that cars built with conventional oil in mind can benefit from using synthetic oil or a blend of synthetic and conventional oil. To find out which type of oil is best for your diesel VW, consult the manufacturer, and talk with our certified VW experts.
