Why does my car stereo begin to display superfast and tweek and flash when I am driving higher RPM's in a 1970 VW Bug. It is over volting the radio right?


check your charging system with a DMM it should read about 12.5v when engine not running and 13 to 14v when running any figure above that is definitely an over charge and could lead to various malfunctions on the vehicle.

May have radiator fluid in oil 2001 vw beetle


An oil leak mixing with coolant is an internal leak, which is usually the result of a faulty or damaged head gasket, or cracked head. This is a major repair job, because the entire top of the engine has to be removed to do the repair. You can't see the leak because it's inside the engine, not outside of it. White smoke (steam) should be coming out of the exhaust pipe if this is true.

What kind of oil is best for my bug. It has 114 thousand miles on it


For VW gasoline or diesel engines it is recommended to use 5w-30 SYNTHETIC, but needs to meet the VW standard 50200-50500 (most if not all Mobile 1 oils do).

What engine oil should i use in my 1970 kombi camper


Any 5W30 will work fine, however because the oil coolers in 1970 and pre 70 VW were so marginal it is a good idea to put a full flow oil filter on and if you really want to do it a service you should consider a remote cooler or a post 70 VW dog house cooler that was larger and added to your oil capacity by about 1.5 qts and you can extend your oil change to 3000 mi. I am an avid Amsoil fan for proven reasons... I have a hard working F-350 power stroke diesel with 240,000 miles on it and still as strong as new thanks to Amsoil 100% synthetic. One thing about synthetics that will help your 70 is that they tend to make your engine run cooler, but be warned if you have an oil consumption condition now it will be aggravated by synthetics so in that case stick with a good quality name brand Dino oil like Shell or Esso etc.

Oil in water resovour vw 2002 passat


Could be just the OIL COOLER. VW IS CORRECT.
If the oil cooloer fails internely you will have a mix of coolant and oil. In the engine and in the Radiator,

But not to say the other guys were wrong...
