5w40

  1. Oil equivalent for Castrol Edge Professional OE/505.01 5w-40

    New Member Introductions
    I have a 2008 Passat 2.0T that we got a year ago and discovered over time that it's an oil pig! My VW dealer only sells me the VW recommended Castrol Edge Professional OE/505.01 5w-40, but I'm looking for a cheaper alternative since this motor goes through quite quickly. Mechanic says it's...
  2. Ive got a ton of Liqui Moly 5w40 Diesel. Can I use it in my 1.8T?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have a lot of Liqui Moly 5w40 Diesel synthetic left from when my 2005 Jetta TDI was working. Long story short, it was the worst cat I've ever owned. Liqui Moly is expensive stuff and I don't want to waste it. Will it work in my 2003 Passat 1.8T? What is different about the diesel 5w40...

  5. Where do you guys buy 5w40 synth oil in Toronto

    Canada
    Don't want to start another oil thread, just want to know where I can get some oil in Toronto. Tried a couple Canadian tire locations and a wall mart to find Castrol edge 5w40 but non of them had it in stock. I did find mobil 1 turbo diesel truck. But not sure if I can use that in my 1.8t...
  6. Since you guys love oil questions... LiquiMoly Synthoil 5w40 or Toptec 4100 5w40?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I've done much searching but no real answers to my question. I have an ATW 1.8t with 190k and have been using LiquiMoly Synthoil Premium 5w40 for quite a while. Always really happy with the oil until about 3500-4k miles when it starts to burn it off. I'm a big fan of LiquiMoly and can get it...

  8. Which (PEPBOYS, Tire Plus, Monroe, etc) shop uses 5W-40 syn for oil change?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Other than indy shops, which of the chain (PEPBOYS, Tire Plus, Monroe, etc) shop uses 5W-40 synthetic (meeting VW 502 standard) for engine oil changes? I called around and I am getting inconsistent replies from different locations of these chain shops. For example, I called one shop and ask...

  10. Changing from 5w-30 oil to 5w-40 (1.8t)

    New Member Introductions
    I just purchased a 1.8t and the stealership put in 5w-30 and the manuel suggests 5w-40 full synthetic. Is it ok for me to goto a garage and get an oil change before I need one to change from the 30 weight to 40 weight? and is it ok to change it like that?
  11. Mobil 1 Synthetic 5w-40 for Diesel/Truck?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Ive been using Shell Rotella 5w-40, but just switched to Mobil 1 Synthetic 5w-40 for Diesel/Truck. I know its prob. not under the VW 502 required oils or whatever, which isnt a big deal. But is it ok? I mean as long as its 5w-40 synthetic right?
  12. Motul 8100 X-Clean 5W-40 $5/Liter!!!

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I already picked up some oil for my next change, but assuming this oil is ok for gas engines (which it should be, since it is VW 502 compliant, but the label implies it is more for diesels), this is a steal! World Impex has it on sale for $5/liter which is a steal, since most Motul oils are $8...

  14. About Castrol 5W30 approved by latest Audi TSB

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I found from one of the Audi PDF's that Castrol 5w-30 is 502.00 specific (please see below)? I used this one on my last oil change with a Mobile filter. I got this for $29 (5 liter jug with filter) from AutoZone. With 5w-40 it would be roughly $50 which is same as firestone charges for full...

  16. Mobil 5W-40 Turbo Diesel Truck Oil for Passat

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have been looking around for Mobil 1 5w-40 and the only thing I can find readily available is their 5W-40 Turbo Diesel truck oil. Has anyone else had experience using this oil in their V-6? Is this safe to use for our cars? Or should I keep looking? Thank you.
  17. 0w-30 GC or 5w-40 or ?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Guys, I've read up allot about the oils that are cert. for VW. My question is for the 1.8t. I've been using the German Castrol (GC) 0w-30 but I'm wondering if it's too thin basically. Although it's heavier than the typical 30w my concern is the higher temps in the summer and that I'm pushing...
