What Is the Connection Between Motor Oil and Performance?

Inspect any Volkswagen engine, and you’ll find oil to be the prime fluid responsible for correct, efficient performance. At Heritage Volkswagen Catonsville, our Volkswagen service department is no stranger to the importance of a regular oil change, and we are here to help you get the best performance out of your engine possible.  

Behind every well-performing engine is a good amount of gunk-free motor oil. Motor oil is more than just a lubricant for your engine’s various components; it is one of the main factors involved in the long-term health of any engine. Motor oil can be purchased in a wide variety of grades and types and can be specialized to perform for a certain kind of engine or vehicle. While getting the right kind of motor oil for your Volkswagen engine is important, it pales in comparison to the value of a regular oil change in our auto service center near Columbia, MD.  

While the specific mileage can vary depending on the car or engine, many auto experts agree that getting your oil changed once every 5,000 miles or so can reduce the long-term consequences of oil grime buildup. If you neglect to get your oil changed during these recommended periods, you start to put your engine at pretty serious risk. Old grimy motor oil causes excessive friction and heat in your engine, which can not just cause your engine to work harder, but also put wear on your components. An engine that doesn’t receive an oil change at the recommended mileage point can and will experience far more mechanical issues than a powertrain that is properly maintained. If left neglected for a long period of time, you can end up doing some costly damage to your engine, and it may even need to be replaced altogether.  

Although, you can avoid all this when you visit Heritage Volkswagen Catonsville to receive regular oil changes. We’ll not only change out your motor oil, but we’ll also inspect your vehicle from bumper to bumper to ensure everything is in tip-top shape. From oil changes to new Volkswagen cars, we strive to be the Baltimore area’s most comprehensive Volkswagen dealership
