SOURCE: what service is reccommended for 2004 jetta with

Nothing. Assuming you are doing a 5000 mi interval for oil changes, drive happy until 30,000. At that point do the oil, drain water seperator (diesel only) ck washer fluid, ck brakes (mine lasted until 140, 000 mi), depending on your schedule- rotate and balance tires, and check battery. VW also suggests to pop off the timing belt cover and ck for cracks, fluid leaks ect.

Your big service comes at 40,000 mi. Oh, and if you want to take it to a professional shop, save the money and aggravation and go to a local v-dub, or foreign car specialist. Avoid the STEALership at all costs.... this is from a former dealer tech...

Can you use 5w20 instead of 5w30 engine oil when they reccomend 5w30


Use only the oil weight on the oil cap or owners manual if the cap does not list the oil weight. Most older vehicles called for eather 10w30 or 5w30 depending on the ambient temp. In the past 10 or so years, manufacturers updated engines for better fuel efficiency by tightening tolerances in the engines, thereby needing a lighter oil weight to provide sufficient lubrication for the parts So manufacturers started requiring 5w20 oil in their engines. I work as an Auto Care Technician at Walmart, and we will NOT do an oil change for any weight other than the recommended weight by the manufacturer. If it calls for 5w20, we use 5w20, regardless of what the owner wants. This is to avoid any possible engine oil related problems. People will blame someone else if they have a warranty issue the dealer refuses to honor for whatever reason, and it would go back to the last place the vehicle had the oil changed at. So therefore at Walmart, we follow the manufacturers recommended oil weight for all oil changes.

What kind of oil does my 2003 Pontiac Grand Am GT V-6 Ram Air take?


The company recommendation can be seen on the oil fill tube cover. They recommend for 5w20 and 5w30 type of oil . They also have the own brand recommendation written there.

But my personal recommendation would be to go to 10w 30 type (if you are not living in ares where temperature falls below freezing conditions).

Will 10w30 oil damage your engine in a 2008 Ford Fusion. Dealer says it did. I had two oil changes by a friend and I think he used this oil. In between I also had oil changes done by an oil change company...


it depends on the oil your friend used, fords DONT like castrol or duchams.. you are better using the 5w/15 fords own brand as the hydrolic tappets need almost water like oil... its a ford and mazda thing..

Valve Lifter Noise on 2001 525.


The Castrol synthetic 5W20 oil may be too light for your car. None of the following three sources recommend 5W20 oil.

Per Bentley manual for 1999 and later E39 BMW (excluding M5), BMW HP 5W30 synthetic oil (07 51 0 017 866) is recommended.
Per the Mobil Oil web site, Mobil 1 synthetic 0W40 oil is recommended.
Per the Castrol Oil web site:
SM 5W-30 - Thank you for inquiring about what oil is best for your vehicle. Based on the information you provided, your vehicle requires a special engine oil that can only be purchased at your local dealer. Please visit your local dealer to ensure that your vehicle is serviced properly.

Does the noise vary or is it constant? Noticed only at startup or all the time?
Another ticking noise source could be the VANOS unit.
