Every 7,500 Miles
Every 7,500 miles you should get an engine oil change and oil filter replacement. Engine oil is necessary to keep essential components in your engine well-lubricated, and will keep everything running smoothly. Neglecting to replace your engine oil at the recommended intervals can lead to friction in your engine and potential damage.
At this time, you should also rotate your tires. Rotating your tires allows for even distribution of wear which can help to improve traction and prevent blow outs. Rotate your tires when recommended to help them last longer.
Every 15,000 Miles
Your engine air filter prevents excessive dirt and dust from the road from entering the engine of your Volkswagen Jetta. In order to keep your engine clean and running properly, this should be replaced every 15,000 miles. Also, at that time, you should replace the cabin air filter, so dust and pollen does not enter the interior of your vehicle, creating an unpleasant driving experience.
Every 30,000 Miles
Around 30,000 miles, necessary fluids in your Volkswagen Jetta will start to need to be replaced like your brake fluid. Brake fluid is essential to keep components of your brakes lubricated and functioning properly. Engine coolant is another important fluid that keeps your engine cool to prevent overheating. You should replace it at this time, as well. To further maintain your engine, have your transmission fluid replaced, too.
Every 40,000 Miles
If your spark plugs are not changed at the proper interval, then you may not be able to start your car, and could experience an engine misfire. Therefore, you should replace them every 40,000 miles. Your brake pads wear down over time and if they become too thin, brake components may rub against each other and effect braking ability. Stay safe and replace your brake pads at this time, as well.
At 40,000 miles, you may also need to replace the tires on your VW Jetta. However, if you have been maintaining your tires properly by balancing them regularly and having them rotated when recommended, you may find your tires lasting longer. On the other hand, if you have been driving in extreme conditions, like on sand or snow, then you may need to change your tires sooner.
