Seat Exeo Engine Oil Finder

The Spanish car manufacturer SEAT was founded over seven decades ago, back in 1950 and is now part of the Volkswagen Group along with Audi and Skoda. It's therefore not surprising that the cars being produced by Volkswagen and Seat are closely related with many aspects of the technology and mechanics being very similar. The main differentiation between the brands is that with Seat is marketed as a sportier and younger persons brand. Seat hhad a number of very successful cars across different classes, some of the best known are the Exeo, the Seat Ibiza and the Seat Leon. All models are traditionally named after Spanish cities or regions.

Seat manufactured the Exeo sedans and ST station wagons with Audi technology until 2013 and took over engines from the VW range. This also has an impact on the oil change intervals of the Exeo. As is usual at the parent company, the machines are set up for longer intervals when they are filled with long-life motor oil.

Seat Exeo Oil change: Intervals & How Often?

With the Exeo the oil change interval varies depending on whether you are using 'Long-life' oil or a 'standard lubricant oil'. For Seat models with the 2.0 TDI engine, for example, a service is recommended every 30,000 km or every 24 months if filled with long-life engine oil. Conventional lubricants and standard oils need to be replaced every 15,000 km or every 12 months. There are also differences in terms of the amount of oil used and the types of oil used, depending on the Exeo engine. Typically the Seat Exeo needs around 4.4 liters of fresh lubricant per oil change. When using long-life oil, Seat require the VW standard 503 00 oil, while conventional oils must meet the VW 501 01 standards.

Motor oil is a vital part of your Seat Exeo's engine. It provides the much needed lubrication to many of the internal parts of an engine. One of its key jobs is to prevent wear and tear on the moving parts which helps keep the engine running smoothly. Without oil, the engine would cease up almost immediately.

Regularly checking and changing your Seat Exeo engine oil is really important. Every time you start and run your car, very fine by-products from the combustion in the engine will be collected in the engine oil. This is one of the reasons why over time the oil goes black. If these contaminants build up too much and exceed the capacity of the oil it can have a negative impact on your car’s overall efficiency and actually effect its performance as it creates sludge and increased wear in the engine block.

Every engine oil will have its viscosity grade labelled on the packaging. This will look something like 0W-20, 5W-30 or 5W-40. This grading is used to measure how thick / fluid the oil is and help ensure you buy the right oil for your car. The lower the viscosity grade of the oil, the more fluid and thinner it will be than those with a high grade (higher numbers) which will be much less running and thick.
