Question about 2005 Volkswagen Jetta

1 Answer

Changed oil in 05 vw jetta and exhaust light came on.

I bought a 2005 1/2 VW Jetta about 6 months ago and have always had someone else change the oil. However, I decided that this time I would do it myself as I have always done in the past with other cars. I found out that it take 6.3 quarts and I put in exactly 6.0 quarts and a new filter insert. After I started my car i noticed that the exhaust light came on and hasn't gone off yet. The manual says that it can happen when the oil is overfilled but its not. 1) did do something wrong? 2) Is it normal after an oil change? 3) hoe do I get it off?

Thanks
Dohn

    A 2.5 L engine? Is it the exhaust light or a little wrench light? Did you drain the oil with the engine warm?

Hi Dohn. The save levelto fill you oil is 3/4 from empty on your dip stick. This gives the engine space to breath. What has most likely happened here is, the engine has had too much oil and is trying to find a way out which will end up on your drive or through yor exhaust.

2005 VW Jetta TDI Wagon: Left brake light doesn't


Very difficult. You have to open the inside access door on the drivers side, remove the amp and wheel well cover, pinch the tabs and the bulb cluster will release. The taillight assembly is bolted from inside of the car, so it can't be done outside.

is he sure it isn't the rings are worn also?  If so don't waste money on a valve job, when you really need a rebuilt motor.  Had you changed the oil more you wouldn't need this repair at this time.  Good uck as his price is decent.  Ask him the price for a long block?
