Question about 1987 Volkswagen Jetta
What oil should be put in my stock 1.8l 4cyl '87 vw jetta. Also, what oil for the stock 5spd transmission. I'd like info from the actual service manual if possible.
The engine oil specifications can be found on the top of the filler cap under your hood, as well as in the VW Owner's Manual under specifications. VW's produced from the late 1990's typically use 5W-30 motor oil, and in the 1980's they typically speced 10W-30 (API*,SL 10W-30) motor oil. Your car knows best, check those locations first.
