Yes you can use conventional oil, but it will mean more frequent oil changes at least every 3,000 miles, also engine wear is much less with synthetic oil, almost zero in fact, but if you change cars before 100,000 miles that is not an issue. I have a car, a Chevy Corvette that uses synthetic oil, I watch ads for sales and rebates, got 3 cases (18 quarts) for $18.00 US after rebates, these are major brands like Mobil 1

Will a 2 litre vw Golf 2011 diesel fit a 1.6 diesel 2011 Golf


I wouldn't suggest it. It wouldn't be just an engine swap that you unplug and unbolt and and then reverse...thats not to say it can't be done with a lot of thinking and work and reprogramming that's usually for vw experts...your better off to keep looking at other wreckers for the exact motor

Oil specifications


The motor oil from the factory is motocraft synthetic blend 5w-30 for normal conditions and motocraft synthetic blend 5w-20 for cold environments. But any synthetic blend or full synthetic of equal weight will do just fine and you will require 5 quarts of oil. DO NOT USE A THICKER WEIGHT OIL, OIL ADDITIVES OR NON SYNTHETIC. Thicker oil like 10w-30, 10w-40, 20w-50 will not be thin enough to lubericate the tighter clearences of the motor and coventional oil breaks down faster than a synthetic blend or synthetic. And be sure to change the oil every 5,000 miles
