    So I did an oil change yesterday on my 2.0 TDI (170HK) and I filled to the stated 4.3 litres. After filling I waited a while and checked my oil, it was too high, I thought that it was probably the filter (paper filter "on top") so I ran the engine for a few minutes and checked again, and sure...

    I own a 2006 Passat 1.9 diesel with a particulate filter. Wouldn't the new 0W-30 oil be a problem for this engine?
  4. Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hi guys, I'm getting two different answers from online and garages about the right oil for this car. It's either 0W-30 or 5W-30. Not sure. I live in the Pacific Northwest where the seasons are relatively mild. Also is it important that the oil is rated 'SN Plus' because the engine is a...

    My passat has a turbo underboost code and before changing the turbo I was inspecting all the lines. I noticed that there was an elbow completely missing that looks pretty important. It goes into the engine right near where the oil dipstick tube is. I have no idea what the purpose of the elbow...

    2003 vw passat with the W8. Has anyone had the oil filter assemble bolts just shear off? I found it odd that all three would. Doesn't look like it hit anything.

Anyways, today when I left work, driving on the hwy, my car said low pressure oil, stop engine. Than the speed...

    2004.5 vw passat 1.8 turbo - automatic (~180k miles) I was thinking about getting a magnetic oil drain plug. Was thinking about getting a goldplug: Anyone have thoughts on whether or not this is a good idea? Thanks.

    2001 Passat GLX V6 95K I’ve had this car since 2004 and for the first time ever the dreaded Oil Pressure light screamed at me today. I’ve researched this question here but this incident is different than others I’ve read about. In my case I was driving some curvy roads on the way to the...

    Hey all, I'm a long time lurker but given that searching yielded nothing that seemed to mirror my issue, I'm no a noob poster. The Story: I have been having an issue with the oil dummy light coming on intermittently and rarely for about 6 months at this point. As a consequence of the first...

    2006 Passat 2.0T Oil Pressure I'm having oil pressure issues just above idle on my Passat. I've read about replacing the oil pump with the 1.8 unit. Has anyone ever tried this?

    The plastic broke and I just had an old change but big leaks on the Turbo unit so I cannot go by the amount of oil unless through it out and replacing this new oil with another new batch. Could someone that owns a Passat as mine above just go and measure the distance from the very end of the...

    I recently acquired an '02 Passat 1.8T Wagon (auto) w/ 175k miles in really nice shape (runs and shifts flawlessly, not even a door ding) except that the oil pressure light flickers above about 2500rpm. It needs an ABS module, but other than that, it's great. I assumed (dumb, I know), it was...

    So over winter I noticed an oil leak coming from the back of the engine on my 1.8t so i figured that it was the Valve cover gasket or the cam chain tensioner gasket so I replaced them and the half moon about 2 weeks ago and cleaned up the area as best I could. I just checked again recently and...

    I got this white b5 wagon for about 500 because there were a few simple problems that i could easily fix, however, I ran into an issue. I replaced the oil cooler and pan because they both seemed to leak severely. The seal for the oil cooler broke and the oil pan had a crack. I replaced both (...
