    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.

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

I have a 2001.5 VW Passat. Within the past three months, I replaced the oil pump and before i replaced the coolant hoses it overheated. Before I replaced the hoses, I made sure that it stayed with...


hi, have you changed the coolant thermostat. you can check this by taking out the thermostat boil it in an old pot and if it OPENS it is o.k.. or bleed the system of coolant take the highest coolant pipe off WHEN COLD and lower it down if flowing then the coolant pump is working. the radiator could be blocked. the engine coolant pump fins can corode (this can warm the coolant too), need to check if coolant is ciculating. the coolant dies after 3 years. gerry

Where is oil pressure switch on vw passat 1.8T 2001 Y plate?. and how do i change it?


it is on the rear of the engine, on the left hand side. it leaks oil a lot and sometimes the switch goes bad too. by left hand side i mean the left of the vehicle, not your left if you are looking at the engine from the front. you replace it from up top. it is iether just below the head on the block, or on the head itself.

How much oil is required when changing the oil and filter in a 1998 VW passat sedan 1.8L turbo? I've also heard that there is a oil slugde problem with those engines, are there any additives or solutions...


1998 VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT 1.8L 4-cyl Engine Code AEB/AWM Turbo
Models with 1.8L Engine codes AEB, ATW, AUG, AWM only
use engine oil that is formulated to meet
Volkswagen oil standard VW 502.00
(with viscosity of SAE 5W-40, 5W-30 or 0W-40).


CAPACITIES: Engine, with filter..........3.5 liter To prevent overfilling during oil changes, add 0.5 liter
(0.5 quart) less than capacity shown, start engine, let run
until engine operating temperature is approx. 60 °C (140 °F)
, switch engine off, wait 3 minutes, check dipstick,
fill to full mark as indicated on dipstick (may be more or
less than 0.5 liter (0.5 quart) depending on model).

As for the sludge question, I add Marvel Mystery Oil around 600 miles before i do my oil change. This will clean out the oil pick up screen and oil journals through out the engine, I do this on every oil change and i have over 356,000 miles on my engine. Oil and filter changed every 3,000 miles intervals. Good luck and hope this helps.
