Question about 2001 Volkswagen Passat
The passat takes more than 5Qt of oil. Please check manual..it is more likely close to 6 qts of oil. Also replace oil at 3k. Sludge is also a common problem in this vehicles. Changing the oil at early schedules it will reduce any changes of blown engine...$18.00 cost, if you do it yourself..vs $ 5 to 10 k to replace the engine...Also this type of engines use oil at a rapid pace..check it every 500 to 1000 miles, pending on your driving needs. You will see a need to add a quart of oil, due to the sludge issue..

put a new filter on
