Hi there,

I would suggest using a full synthetic, 5W40. I would use a oil system cleaner, prior to the oil change. let it run in vehicle for 10 - 15 mins or so in the old oil, then i would do the change over, to the synthetic 5w40

Why is my oil pressure light is saying low oil


if there is insufficient oil in the sump then the pump picks up air and the oil pressure drops. This results in a message on the dash for you to check the engine oil level and bring it up to full level.
If that is not the case then take it to an accredited service centre that has experience on your vehicle for a proper diagnosis as it could prove costly if you don't.

Whats the shop labor time to replace an oil pan on a 1999 vw passat?


Hi. I am not sure of the exact workshop flat rate time, but the subframe needs to be lowered. I think 3 hrs is a fair time to do this repair. A wheel alignment would be needed as extra.

Hello.What's the recommended automatic Transmition oil for Passat 1999?


Hi k_belal,

The recommended transmission fluid for the 1999 VW Passat is Esso LT 71141. There are several US distributors of it, but it is mostly stocked in drums, and sold at a pretty high dollar($15-$19) for single quarts.

I hope this helps.

My 2003 volkswagen passat is smoking just got a oil change any suggestions


They probably were sloppy in the processand either spilled oil when they were putting it into the motor or got some on the exhaust when they were draining it. Keep an eye on you oil level and if it stays full they smoking should go away quickly. If the company that did it is close take it back in and let them check it out and clean up their mess.

Oil usage in 2006 passat 2.0 turbo


I had the same problem with my wife's 2006 passat turbo. We lost 2.5 quarts in 3000 miles and the warning light came on. They put us on a 1000 mile oil test and I lost 1.8 more quarts of oil. They finally agreed to replace the rings. Service tech told me that the factory rings are defective, they begin to lead after about 25,000.
