At LaFontaine Volkswagen of Dearborn, our oil changes feature the same remarkable core resources – factory-trained and certified technician, genuine Volkswagen OEM oil and filter, all completed in a state-of-the-art facility with cutting-edge equipment. With all of these high-quality service ingredients, we have many loyal customers from Detroit that bring their vehicle to us for all of their oil changes and other auto services.


Motor Oil & Routine Oil Change Maintenance 101

Combustion engines require an internal oil that keeps the moving parts lubricated, as friction-free as possible, and generating drive power efficiently. The extreme environment within the engine, sponsoring thousands of explosions each minute of operation, causes the engine oil to change chemically as the oil loses its lubricative property, called viscosity.

When your oil loses viscosity, it is forming into a sludge that is a poor lubricant. It is for these reasons that it is always an excellent strategy to simply follow Volkswagen’s recommendation for your model’s oil change service.

Factors to Avoid to Get the Most Out of Your Vehicle

We like to remind our customers from Detroit that their driving style and driving conditions influence the engine oil’s condition and performance. With proven factors causing the engine oil to lose integrity faster, our customers can adjust their driving style and transportation methods to help protect the engine oil and make it last longer, which also serves the engine by protecting it from excessive wear and tear.

Although adjusting these factors can’t make engine oil last forever, and will still require changes at the specified interval, these factors can ultimately help our customers get more out of their engine oil and protect the engine optimally:

  • Making frequent trips shorter than 10 miles below freezing
  • Majority of trips include long idling, such as driving in stop-and-go traffic
  • Driving in dirty environments, such as unpaved roads or in city air pollution
  • Vehicles towing trailers or other heavy loads, worsened when in extreme temperatures
  • Delivery service vehicles (making frequent short trips)

Conventional Oil

The historic standard recommendation for engine oils for decades, conventional oil is the basic starting point for discussing engine oils. It is commonly recommended for older-model vehicles as well as late-models with lower-mileage engines.

Synthetic Oil

Representing the modern advancement in engine oil technology, synthetic oil takes performance to the max by resisting sludge formation longer. Although it costs more due to the additional refinement requirements as an entirely manmade substance, the little additional cost is often mitigated by the benefits the engine receives.

Diesel Oil

This is engine oil explicitly engineered for diesel-engine models only.
