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

Automatic or standard transmission? For this you should see a VW dealer. The oil change outfits are staffed by **** usually. As far as cost, I do not know where you are so no idea.

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..

How quarts of oil does a 1992 passat hold, no manual and has the wrong dipstick in it. The car was given to me. The oil light and alarm is driving me nuts. The dipstick that is in it is reading full but...


That car takes 4.2 US quarts or 4 liters when you change the oil and filter. It takes 3.7 US quarts or 3.5 liters without the filter change.
Change the oil and mark the dipstick with a file so you know where the full mark is. Also that engine has 2 oil pressure switchs on top of the oil filter housing. If they aren't connected or faulty the oil light will come on. Hope this helps.

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.

The best thing to do is go to any Advance or Auto Zone and buy the Chilton Repair book for this vehicle and it will have step by step instuctions for any repairs that you may need. It also has pictures too. They cost around 19.99 but this book is the best for any repairs that you may ever have. Hope this helps.

Yes, you must remove it. The oil pan plug is a BOLT, not a large allen head type screw.
