WHY OIL IS IMPORTANT FOR RELIABLE ENGINE OPERATION

Engine oil is an essential component of your engine. It allows for smooth and long-term operation. It reduces friction and thereby also lowers engine temperature, noise, and most of all wear. High-quality and regularly changed engine oil is critical to the trouble-free use of your car through many years.

Take a look at the differences between high-quality, regularly changed oil and low-quality, overused oil.

Genuine oil, regularly changed ensures:

  • Lubrication for all important engine components, with reduced friction and wear
  • Corrosion protection
  • Engine cooling
  • Sealing and proper clearance between materials due to correct viscosity
  • Protection from deposition of combustion by-product solids

Inappropriate, low-quality, or old oil may cause:

  • Engine seize-up and very serious engine damage
  • Engine corrosion due to acidic combustion products or incorrect additives composition
  • Engine overheating and shortened component life
  • Engine seize-up due to lower or higher viscosity than prescribed
  • Faster component wear and damage

CHANGING OIL AND HOW TO DO IT

1. KEEP TO THE SERVICE INTERVAL

Oil needs to be changed regularly after a certain number of kilometres are driven or time has passed. The service interval for changing engine oil is determined by the vehicle’s manufacturer.

Where to find the oil-service interval for your vehicle?

On a data sticker placed under the mat of the cargo compartment or in the instructions manual for your vehicle.

Tell me more

On the Maxi DOT display or in the vehicle’s infotainment. The vehicle will notify you of an upcoming inspection.

In the MyŠKODA App or ŠKODA Connect smartphone apps which are connected to your vehicle.

MYŠKODA APP

With the MyŠKODA App, you will have your vehicle under control. The app will notify you of a coming service interval for changing oil (if connected to the vehicle) or advice how to top up the oil.

2. USE ENGINE OIL DESIGNATED FOR YOUR VEHICLE

When changing oil, it is necessary to follow the instruction of the vehicle’s manufacturer and to use only lubricants conforming to your engine’s requirements. One of the most important oil parameters is the SAE classification designating oil viscosity.

Where can you find out which engine oil is appropriate for your car?

Look into your vehicle’s instruction manual. There you can find specification of VW Standards directly for your engine.
