Volkswagen Touran Engine Oil Finder

When changing your Touran engine oil, always use oil with the correct approval from Volkswagen and don't just look for the SAE number. When developing an engine, the engineers commit themselves to certain properties of the engine oil. These parameters are included in their calculations and tests. In order to achieve the desired parameters of a motor oil, different additives are added in a specific combination. With the approval, Volkswagen ensures that an engine oil sufficiently meets the requirements.

In contrast, the SAE number (5W-40 or similar) only describes the flow properties of an engine oil at high and low temperatures. Motor oils with the same specification can even have different SAE numbers. Therefore, only ever use engine oil with the correct approval - when changing the oil and also when topping up. If you use the long-life service for your VW Touran, this is particularly important: With a different oil, the software may no longer be able to evaluate the data correctly and the on-board computer reports the upcoming oil change at the wrong time.

Why Do I Need To Change The Oil In My Volkswagen Touran?

In addition to other service elements, the regular oil change is one of the most important maintenance steps to guarantee the longevity of your VW Touran: premature wear can be prevented and warranty claims (factory and extended warranties) are retained. With the 1.5 TSI OPF in 2020 the Touran has developed significantly compared to the earlier Touran models (From 2005). What has remained the same, however, is that every combustion engine in the Touran series still requires regular replacement of the engine oil. This is for a few simple reasons: the engine oil ensures that the moving parts run with little friction, it seals between the piston and the cylinder, it keeps particles in the levitation, cleans, protects against corrosion and dissipates high temperatures. Due to the combustion process, dirt particles collect in the engine oil and chemical reactions take place. As a result, its performance drops and the protective functions decrease.

Volkswagen Touran Engine Oil Change Interval

With the fixed interval, you drive your VW Touran for an oil change either after 15,000 km or after 12 months - whichever comes first.

The long-life service is also referred to as flexible intervals: based on various sensor data and parameters, an algorithm calculates when the quality of the engine oil has dropped so much that it should be replaced. However you still have to have the engine oil changed after a maximum of 30,000 km or 24 months at the latest.

If you have the choice between the fixed and the flexible interval: Which oil change interval is best for your VW Touran depends primarily on your driving behaviour. To find out, you can first test the Longlife service. If it turns out that your change intervals roughly correspond to the fixed intervals, then it is better to switch to the fixed intervals. Because the long-life oil is more expensive than the "normal" oil.

We have listed all the Volkswagen Touran models and engine types in the following table, as well as the correct engine oil grade for each of the cars. You can use the search and filter to easily find the right engine oil for your Volkswagen Touran.

The Importance Of Volkswagen Touran Motor Oil

Motor oil is a vital part of your Volkswagen Touran'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 Volkswagen Touran 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.
