Volkswagen Diesel Engine Oil Change

Diesel engines, like gasoline engines, require regular oil changes to ensure smooth operation.

Here is more about a diesel engine oil change and why your vehicle needs one.

Why Your Diesel Engine Needs Regular Oil Changes

Engine oil lubricates and removes dirt and other contaminants that could affect performance and reliability. Changing the oil at the recommended intervals removes accumulated dirt and keeps sludge from forming on your engine. Also, engine oil breaks down and loses its effectiveness as a lubricant over time. Failing to change the oil often could result in early engine wear and lead to potential heat-related issues and breakdowns.

How Diesel Oil Changes Are Done

Diesel oil changes are similar to those done on gasoline-powered vehicles. The old oil and filter are removed and replaced with fresh oil and a new filter. The main differences between the two oil change types are the type of oil and how often you should have it changed. Diesel oil generally needs to be changed less frequently than gasoline oil, depending on how you drive. If you frequently drive in stop and go traffic or heavy idling, then you may need more frequent oil changes than someone who does nearly all highway driving.

Differences Between Diesel and Gasoline Engine Oil

Though gasoline engine oil and diesel engine oil are similar in many ways, they have some significant differences. For one, diesel oil often has higher viscosity than gasoline engine oil. Another key difference between the two oil types is diesel oil has more zinc dialkyl dithiophosphate (ZDDP) than gasoline engine oil. Too much of this element can potentially cause damage to the catalytic converter in a gasoline-powered vehicle. Diesel vehicles have catalytic converters that can handle the extra ZDDP, so it is usually not a problem. Diesel oil also has more detergents and additives.
