Question about 1999 Volkswagen Passat
I have a cracked oil pan on my 1999 Passat 1.8t, and am trying to figure out how much time according to vw it takes to remove and replace the oil pan.
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.

This is probably a head gasket problem and not an oil cooler problem.
The oil cooler is fairly easy to test.
Remove the cooler from the engine but do not disconnect cooling lines and then pressurize the cooling system. You can use a radiator test tool to put pressure on the cooling system and look for leaks. If it leaks, replace it.
You may also be able to bypass the oil cooler altogether if it leaks.
The head gasket is another story.
Get a 1/4" pipe to spark plug fitting and put a male air coupling fitting in it.
Then you can charge the cylinders with air from your compressor.
Make sure each cylinder that you test is at top dead center so that the valves are closed.
If air bubbles into your coolant, you found your problem.
If air leaks out your intake you have a bad intake valve
If air leaks out your exhaust you have a bad exhaust valve etc.
If you find this useful, please take the time to rate it.

This is a mileage interval light that trips every 3,000 to 5,000 miles that indicates an oil change is necessary. You do not need a special tool to change your oil, nor do you need to bring the car in to the dealer.
1. Sit in the driver's seat of the Passat and close all the doors.
2. Position the trip/odometer button to display the odometer mileage reading, then hold it down with the forefinger on your left hand.
3. Turn the ignition key to the "key-on/engine-off" position to turn on all the power options for the Passat without actually starting the engine. At this point, a service indicator light will display (in the form of a wrench).
4. Press the minute adjustment button on the clock (or turn the knob clockwise on European manufactured Passats) and release the trip/odometer button.
Good luck and thank you using Fixya
