I just successfully replaced the rear brakes, calipers, etc, Before taking the car for a test drive I changed the oil for the first time on this car. I misread the Haynes manual for the amount of oil capacity. Instead of 4.1 qts I put in 6.1 qts which seemed like way too much. I drove the car about one mile to check the brakes. I did a Google search to verify the oil amount and discovered my error. I drained the oil pan then put back in the correct amount of oil. When I tried to start the car it sounds sick, turns over --kind of-- but won't start. After 3-4 for short attempts I stopped trying. Now what? Advise? Suggestions? 1999Passat 1.8 turbo automatic front wheel drive. :banghead:
