The plug is on the oil pan underneath the engine check to see if it is secure and not leaking then inspect the oil fiter as most of the time it is a badly seated oil filter. if it is leaking get another filter and replace it properly. remove old filter with a rag clean the seating surface and the threads.take the new filter and put oil on the rubber seal and istall the fiter to hand tight and a quarter of a turn. run the vehiculefor a minute shut off and check the oil level.adjust if required. check for leaks,if dry job is done congratulations

Cheap test. Get 1 quart of correct oil, pour in engine through oil filler, then quickly look underneath. If oil is running out anywhere, you have a problem.

Oil plug should be the lowest point on the oil pan.

If the oil plug is missing, don't drive or run the car. Doing so could seize the engine.

How to know there is the right level of oil in the transmission of a 2006 vw jetta?


By using a scanner and opening the transmission drain plug and seeing if oil comes out.
ATF must be at a certain temperature for correct level.

Best left to a tech' who is VW specialist or VW dealership. ATF fluid is very expensive.

Transmission slams hard when down shifting. rattles car. 2007 vw passat. 2.0 turbo automatic


Need more clarification when driving and park. Happen to vw a lot with no solution. Could be electrical ( Tcm + Wiring conector, ECM) ( fluid change fluid+filter add lucid tray oil) or mechanical. Rattle could be engine or evap thing located under or next to air filter. Alternator also. The engine you speak of is know for sludge build up problems by VW. They've even made recalls base on what I've heard. Check oil circulation and how to fix oil circulation problem. Drop the the oil pan and clean filter screen where it sucks in oil. Other things related need to be unclog..

What can cause a 2004 VW Passat to be drinking oil. It started after an oil change.


Make sure you do have any leaks from the drain plug or the base of the oil filter etc. Does your exhaust look blue when you accelerate? The car is relatively new and it should not be burning oil, either old or new. Was the oil changed with the recommended type?

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,

I would check the oil pressure sensor and the oil pump itself. You can take the sensor out and use a mechanical gauge to check the oil pressure. If the oil pressure is within specs, you need a new sensor, if not, you need a new pump.

2005 Passat TDI wagon sucking oil


what would a CV joint have to do with oil consumption? the answer ZERO, if the VC gasket was leaking that bad you would have a large puddle of oil under the engine every time you parked it for more than a few minutes, so doubt that is the problem, has the dealer run a clyinder leak down test to determine if the piston rings are sealing properly? that is the next step, sure sounds like they don't know what they are doing and they are guessing, make them do it for free, they changed out the turbo for no reason it seems, u are out $1800! and no change in oil consumption, make them do there job right or get ahold of the dept of consumer affairs for your state and open a case, that will light a fire under there ****.
