No different from any other oil change, just reset the oil life on the dash if it has one which i believe it does. The oil grade is 5W-30 on the turbo engines and 10W-30 on the non turbo engines. If you like you can go with the synthetic oil which will give you up to 25,000 miles or 1 year before service, but you do have to replace the oil filter every 5,000 to 7,000 mile and top off the synthetic oil which in the long run be cheaper then changing the oil and filter every 5,000 miles or six months for turbo and 3,000 to 4 months for non turbo engines. Good luck and hope this helps.

2000 VW new Beetle uses a lot of oil, but has no leaks, oil fouls sparkplugs


Do you have the turbo model? If so you could have a bad turbo. You may also have bad valve seals or piston rings. If you have a turbo you can remove the hose or pipe off of the outlet side of your turbo between the turbo and the intake manifold. If there is oil in it your turbo is leaking and will need repaired.

You cant be telling folks that it is gear oil on the rodeos tranny. That suggest 80 90w which will kill. Its Dexron III. You need to correct that.


there are different types of fluids go in that vehicle
the transmission takes ATF
the transfer case for the 4x4 take engine oil ( depend on where you live it take different grades )
the differential takes GL5 also depend on the temperature of your region, it will need different grades.
hope this will explain the confusion

I would like to know how to do my own oil change. If possiable where do i put it and how much also what kind? and the transmition oil also... thank you for your time


oil capacity will be in your owners manual, should be marked for a drain and fill and for a drain and fill WITH filter change. as to the oil grade. seasonal temperatures mean different grades, generally newer cars (ie 1998 or newer) generally just like a 5W-30, i usually go with a 10W-30 though anyways (no cost difference usually). your manual will also tell you what size filter you need. ok, first you should loosen the filler cap on top first just so we get airflow in the block. on the bottom of the engine is the oilpan, it will have bolts all around the edge of it (dont touch these) and one right on the bottom of it, sometimes just off to one side, put your catchpan under this bolt and remove the bolt, the oil will now come out (make sure your pan can hold at least 10 litres as some engines can hold ALOT of oil. using your oil filter wrench, remove the oil filter (cylinder shaped usually near the oil pan). careful since it will also be full of oil. once everything is drained. replace the plug on the oil pan (do NOT forget the gasket if your plug has one). using fresh oil, take your finger dip it into fresh oil and run it along the rubber gasket on your new oil filter and screw it on BY HAND till it feels snug, then go 1/2 to 3/4 of a turn more. down the filler cap ontop pour in 3/4 of the capacity of fresh oil that is stated in your owners manual, let it sit for 30sec-1min and check your dipstick 2 times for an accurate read. continue filling and checking till you meet your full mark on the dipstick keeping in mind that once the level gets onto the stick 1 litre can make the difference between a low and full level read. once you reach full, close the filler cap, run the engine for 1 minute, shut it off and check the level 2 times again, it should have gone down slightly since the filter is now full aswell, check and fill to full mark again and you are done. be sure to dispose of your used oil and filter in a safe way, most automobile service centers can take the used oil and filter and dispose of it for you safely.

Just doing an oil change, what grade of oil needed


handbook recommends 5w30. I personally use 10W30. It leaves a better film on the pistons so when you start up the engine there isnt a knock. 5W30 makes a small ticking sound when you first start up but then goes away. If you want a brand recommendation I recommend Castrol GTX or Motorcraft

What type and grade engine oil do i use


Use 5w30 oil in this car, preferably a synthetic. The manufacturer recommends this grade of oil and it needs to be changed every 3000 miles.
