    So, what exactly do I need remove before removing the oil pan, the stabilzer is also in the way of removing one nut on the pan. I have a VW Passat 1.8t (2000). Are there any easy options, also how easy is it to replace the oil pump, one the pan is off. Cheers for any feedback.

Best thing to do is to undo the engine mounts and lift the engine up. You can use an ond seat belt and a strong peice of wood that will fit accross the engine bay. You can use a tie-down ratchet as well to lift up the engine as it will make things easier. then you'll have more room to remove the pan. Cheers.

Whats the shop labor time to replace an oil pan on a 1999 vw passat?


Hi. I am not sure of the exact workshop flat rate time, but the subframe needs to be lowered. I think 3 hrs is a fair time to do this repair. A wheel alignment would be needed as extra.

It's sludge. Drop the pan drain the oil, clean the screen and the tube, flush the engine and use only fully synthetic oil. This is a hundreds of dollar repair but if you drive it as it is even for ten miles you'll need a new engine. This was an oversight by VW, recommending inadequate oil and it was covered under warranty but yours is out of warranty. It's been a month so you've probably already discovered all this. I can't believe no one in fixya told you right.

Change oil filter


Hello, to change the oil filter try to follow this steps.

1, Lift the Passat with a car jack and place the jack stand underneath it and if don't have use a set of wheel ramps , make sure you brace the front tire so that the car won't roll.

2. Pop the hood and locate the oil filler cap and dipstick Passat cars have the dipstick on the front side of the engine block. Unscrew and remove both the filler cap and dipstick.

3. Gather an oil drip pan, new oil filter, socket or box wrench, filter wrench and cleaning cloths. Slide under your car and locate the drain plug and oil filter. The VW Passat oil filter is on the front side of the engine block. If your Passat is a 1998 or newer, you must remove the lower engine cover for access to filter.
Thanks

Transmission slams hard when down shifting. rattles car. 2007 vw passat. 2.0 turbo automatic


Need more clarification when driving and park. Happen to vw a lot with no solution. Could be electrical ( Tcm + Wiring conector, ECM) ( fluid change fluid+filter add lucid tray oil) or mechanical. Rattle could be engine or evap thing located under or next to air filter. Alternator also. The engine you speak of is know for sludge build up problems by VW. They've even made recalls base on what I've heard. Check oil circulation and how to fix oil circulation problem. Drop the the oil pan and clean filter screen where it sucks in oil. Other things related need to be unclog..

99 Vw passat, changed cracked oil pan now engine statrs up and shuts down after a few seconds as if a security issue


The oil pan should have a sensor in it that is just for that reason. If it looses so much oil it will shut the engine down to prevent engine damage. Either the sensor is cracked or broken or the wires going to it are not plugged in or are broken.

How to cange and oil pan gasket on a 87 monte carlo


The oil pan is at the bottom of the engine. You might have the exhaust in the way, in which case you need a helper so that you can remove the exhast from the engine and take the entire pipe from the vehicle. From there, make sure you drain all the old oil from the engine and pan. Unthread all the bolts that surround the old oil pan gasket (you may have to remove the starter motor to gain access to a few bolts). Lower the pan carefully off the engine block (the oil pump and oil filter screen are within the oil pan. You want to make sure not to damage these componets or the baffle inside the oil pan). Your new gasket may have four retainers-especially if it's a Felpro gasket. These retainers go into the corners of the engine block mating surface for the oil pan. Slide your gasket up onto the retainers and engine block, then put your oil pan onto it (the retainers will hold it loosely in place. Put all the bolts but the four corners into the engine block. Remove the retainers and replace the bolts. Reconnect the exhaust pipe. Fill engine with oil, run, and check for leaks.
