    Still trying to get the right oil for my '07 3.6 Passat. Does the Mobil Super synthetic oil meet the VW 502 specs?

    Mobil-1 10W40 usage may not be VW approved for warranty coverage, but it is an excellent oil. One of the highest quality motor oils available in North America. My 2004 VW owners manual states that 5W40 motor oil in the VW 50X.XX specification is what to use. The 40 part of the designation is...

    I am reading this thread, and wondering which should I go with, the VW 502 or 504 for a gasoline V6 B5? Volkswagen Oils (504.00 and 507.00) | my-gti.com This pfd seems to indicate the 5W-40 is oil to go, not the 5W-30 meeting the 504 standard...

    When I visited RT-Mart (a super store like WalMart in US) in Taipei,Taiwan, these are the 5W-40 oils with VW 502 00/505 00 specs on the shelf: These are 0W-40 oils with VW 502 00/505 00 specs: I even saw Honda and Toyota oils: I am very interested in German Aral Super...

    I stopped by Lord of the Rings Audi/VW in Farmers Branch yesterday to pick up supplies for my oil change. I was able to buy Motul 8100 5W-40 oil for only $6.99/liter. Considering this stuff goes for $9-$11/liter online this is a bargain. Plus, the local Pep Boys is selling Mobil1 and Castrol...

    I was just flipping through my service records and notice something of concern. I am the original owner of my 2003 B5.5 1.8T GLS with 52k miles on it. Prior to coming to this site, I maintained my car solely at the dealer every 5000 miles. I was one of the "Whatever you think" types. I noticed...

    Use this link to the VW page that has the VW 502 Approved Oils list for download. This should be made a permanent part of this site. http://www.vw.com/owners/serv_care.html

    Let's limit this discussion to the exact topic. Has anyone experienced the dreaded sludge while using 502.00 compliant synthetic oil and a 5,000 mile oil change interval? I'd like to limit this to people who've got the full documented service history for their cars. If you don't have a fully...

    Myself and someone else asked about this in some recent posts, but I can't seem to find them, plus I figured everyone else here may be interested in this info. Perhaps it is possible to add this to the information forum? Or at least a link in the info forum indexsince the current link has the...

    ok if its a 502.00 oil, than why did they not include it in their list on the main VW website? http://www.vw.com/vwcom/content/objects/pdf/service_maint/oilchart.pdf i guess im sticking with ELF LDX that is on that list. for those of you who have tried the GC 0w30, did u notice any...

    Well, I've studied my manual some more. And here is the question: what oils, available in SoCal or NA in general, have VW 503 01 and 505 01? Apparently, W8 is very different (duh) and requires different oil then 1.8T. It MUST be 5W-40 and have 503 01 and 505 01 only. Will the list be different...

    According to my owners manual, you CAN use 'non' 502 oil.... From book 3.2, page 36.. (2000 B5, V6)... (quote) ...The following terms must appear on the oil container singly or in combination with other designations: Gasoline Engine * VW 502 00 or VW500 00 or VW501 01 * ACEA A2 or ACEA A3...

    At my local Autozone looking in desperation for some Mobil 1 0W-40, I stumbled across Valvoline MaxLife Synthetic. It's only 5W-30, but it meets VW 502 spec and it claims it has detergents to reduce SLUDGE buildup, yada, yada, yada. My dealer's only putting in Castrol Syntec blend 5W-30 ...

    I have a set of these that are going into my 2002 Passat. I was wondering if anyone can tell me the true output of these. I have heard 187w @ 2 Ohms. I need to know the total output @ 4 ohms. Not what the book says, but you have seen or heard. Thanks MNB
