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...
Hey, im here to ask about oil level warning light
It comes up randomly and as soon as I open the hood(pul the lach from cabin) it goes away
What could be the reason ? ( Oil level is always on point) Passat B5 1.8t 2004
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...
I will install all new rotors and brake pads on my 1.8T brand Are and also put new oil. After removing a old oil and putting a new after vent of all calipers should i need to vent/bleed also a slave cylinder on clutch or dont need, but is recomended??
I had an oil change done about 2 weeks ago. Up until than, my car drove fine. A couple hours later my car didn't feel right. And I kept forgetting to call the place I got it done at. 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?
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.
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...
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 (...
What could be source of this leak? I've replaced the valve cover gasket. The exhaust cam seal was moist, but definitely not wet. What are the other options? Camshaft? Is this the power steering pump?

As many of yous know, it is common to find oil in the spark plug wells with these cars.
The reasons why I am concerned:
Enough oil can hydrolock the engine.
Small amounts can put the final nail in your older catalytic converter's coffin (not ideal for new cats either).
Foul up your...
