Changing oil can be real fun thats one the things i look over before i buy a car. If the guy made the car so hard to work on why would i want own this car. Buy fram filters thats painted crusty on the bottom so you can hand tighten them. Always after you take off the old filter to look for see if the gasket came of the old filter. Dobble gasket mean big leak and hurting your car. Put some oil on the new filter gasket to get a good seal And slowly hand screw the filter you dont want to cross thread the holder the filter. i can tighten my filter so tight you dont need the wrench other take it off becuse if you use the wrench you could hurt the filter
Look up your car find the correct filter wrench to take off the old one.
I find best just buy a jack and jack stands if you cant see the filter and drain plug.
Just buy a Hanes book they help you find ever thing on your cars at auto zone ore one the other stores with your year make and model
And a handy tip i learned about oil and paint to get off your hands use corn oil and rag works great get off paint and old oil on your hands.
it non toxic and then wash with normal soap

How to reset oil light for 2000 jetta vr6

Did you have the oil leak prior to changing the oil? The "change engine oil" indicator is just a service reminder to get the oil changed. You need to reset it. Call your local dealer or check your owner's manual for instructions on doing this. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Oil Light is on need to Reset it. Don't have manaual.

Do you mean the "Oil" light or the "Oil Life System" light?
If the oil light is on, you need to stop operating the engine and have it checked to find out why the light is telling you that there is no oil pressure.

If you mean the Oil Life light, Then here are the instructions:

How to Reset the CHANGE ENGINE OIL Message

1. With the ignition key in RUN but the engine off,

fully push and release the accelerator pedal slowly

three times within five seconds.

2. Turn the key to OFF.

If the CHANGE ENGINE OIL message comes

back on, the engine oil life monitor has not reset.
Repeat the procedure.

You can also download a PDF version of your owner's manual for free.

What kind of oil does it take?

these use special oil I would use Mobil DELVAC1 1 5w40. Your owners manual should specify the VW spec. It will list something like spec.VW505.00 If it does not meet spec VW505.00 do not put it in you rcar. Although if you just bought it, who knows what oil has been used.

I do not have the owners manual for my 1996 audi a4. I get an error on the dash that flashes 'In 2'. The oil light also comes on sometimes. Any ideas?

Try this link for a free manual:-

Check the oil level is ok, change the oil if it hasn't been recently done.
Check operation of the oil press alarm sensor,
Check the oil pressure - using an independant oil pressure gauge if in doubt.

Turbo control/control limit below minmal level jetta 2000 tdi

This happens to almost every TDI. On top of the valve cover there's a puck-shaped device with a 90 degree plastic tube connected to the intake. This is your crankcase vent... and your culprit. I fixed mine using heater hose. For detailed instructions visit a must for every TDI owner
