Volkswagen Touran Owners Manual: Changing engine oil

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

The engine oil must be changed regularly in accordance with the data given in the service schedule.

The engine oil and filter change should always be carried out by a qualified workshop due to the special tools and knowledge required, this also applies to the disposal of used oil. Volkswagen recommends using a Volkswagen dealership for this purpose.

More details on the service intervals can be found in the service schedule.

Additives in the engine oil can cause new engine oil to discolour quickly. This is normal and does not mean that the engine oil should be changed more frequently.


If you have to, in exceptional cases, carry out an oil change yourself in the vehicle, please note the following points:
  • Always wear eye protection.
  • Always allow the engine to cool down completely to avoid burns.
  • Keep your arms horizontal when removing the oil drain plug with your fingers to help prevent oil from running down your arm.
  • Use a suitable container when draining the used oil. It has to be large enough to hold at least all the engine oil.
  • Never store engine oil in empty food containers, bottles or any other non-original containers as people finding these containers may not know that they contain engine oil.
  • Engine oil is poisonous and must be stored out of the reach of children.

Before changing the engine oil, first find an address where old oil can be disposed of properly.

Used oil must be disposed of in accordance with regulations governing the protection of the environment. Never dispose of old oil in, e.g. the garden, in woods, in sewerage systems, on streets and roads, in rivers or waterways.
