Question about 2007 Volkswagen EOS Convertible

3 Answers

Oil problem I have a 2007 VW EOS and the car now has 30250 miles and it has been serviced regularly. The loss of oil started a couple of months ago. The PVC valve was replaced but the problem remaims. The oil has been removed and weighed by the service department three times now. One of the techs stated that it is acceptable to loose a certain amount of oil every 600 miles. I personally find this unacceptable and I want an answer. Now there is a white milky substance on the filler hole and the dip stick. Could this possibly be water? Blown head gasket? What?? The car is still under warranty.

    I have the same problem. Loosing oil way too soon. Have had the oil light go on several times now. Never had this problem with another vehicle.

The white substand is the mixture of oil and antifreeze coolant. also check if this is accumulating in the oil filler cap on top of the engine.
as mentioned this can come from condensation but in large quanties this MAY indicate cylindar head problem or cracked motor block between the oil channls and the water jacket if performance is effected then you have a problem.

Probably not a blown head gasket, maybe, but more than likely a condensation issue. - The 2.0 engines are prone to suffering from condensation issues - which will eventually lead to needing new plugs and coil packs...
Oil consumption is unfortunately pretty normal too. VW won't do squat unless its about 1 qt every 1000 miles...
What kind of daily driving do you do?

Blown head gasket. I would get it to the shop right away. You are starting to mix oil and water and the problem will only get worse until fixed. And the warranty will cover this

How often do you need to change the oil? When we purchased it, the sticker said 5,000 miles. We got an oil change a couple months ago and the new sticker put on says 3,000 miles, the change oil soon...


the standard has always been 3000 miles,,,dont mess with these that claim more,,,carbon build up is the leading cause of faliure,,and the oil is the blood of your engine,,keep it changed,,put some injector cleaner in couple times a yr.,,water remover couple times in winter and you will get long service from your vehicle.

I'm told that my 2007 EOS needs a very expensive change of transmission fluid (I have the tiptronic transmission) for "routine maintenance" at 45,000 miles. What is the liklihood that I will have problems...


VW fill the gearboxes "for life" which means it must be changed at "regular intervals as specified in the dervice manual"you could leave it as long as you want,but could cause problems later.(especially if the car is driven HARD.)the (VW)oil for the tiptronic gearbox IS expensive.

White smoke occasionally coming out of my Altima tail pipes.


If there is no loss of Coolant, which is a sign of Head gasket failure to the combustion area, which generates white smoke, I would recommend after 4000 miles of your mileage alone, a complete Service of Engine Oil and filter, AIR filter and Fuel filter.
An inexpensive way to find a recurring combustion problem, At 60k miles, the Spark plugs should still be good, but pull them anyway, just to confirm.

Where is the oil filter and drain plug to change the oil on a vw eos 2007?


I hope that by now you've already solved this, but the folks at Jiffy Lube tell me that the reason they have to charge me extra to do an oil change on an Eos is that there's a metal plate on the bottom of the car with a whole bunch of bolts they have to take off in order to access the drain plug.
