They can get too HOT! What makes you think it's lean? It's not like they can start dieseling! After all, they were DESIGNED to diesel ... or they would not run at all!

How much does it usually cost to get the oil changed in a 2003 Volkswagen GLS TDI sedan?


Servicing diesel vehicle always cost more.

The filter itself cost about $18+ compare to gasoline engine (~$8).

~5 qt of quality conventional 5W40 oil will cost up to $25

Labor time is under 1/2 hour.

Most shop are charging oil disposial fee now......$2 to $5


DIY will cost you $50.

A honest shop will charge about $80.

My 2002 vw jetta diesel tdi had a recent oil change and I just checked the oil and it is way high. If I drive it will it mess the car up? I have driven it already but I'm really worried.


If it is grossly overfilled it can damage the engine as well as **** oil into the air cleaner and then the engine, on a diesel this can cause a run away engine because a diesel will burn the oil like fuel.

Identifing the smoke color tells you where it is coming from. Black smoke comes from fuel, so it is running rich or not fully igniting the mixture. White smoke comes from oil and often happens under very heavy engine load. On acceleration this could be the piston rings allowing blow-by, on deceleration this could be the valve seals leaking. Blueish smoke is often coolant, indicating a head gasket leak.

You didn't state iof this happens during a moving gear change, or if it has happened since you physically changed some of the gears in the car. On a TDi, I would follow the factory recommendations for all engine lubricants and additives.

I don't know if the noise from my 2003 vw tdi is normal. Are there any valve adjustments that need to be made on this engine (1.9)? My car has 160,000 miles on it. It's not too clattery, but more so upon...


There's no tappets adjustment needed for this engine as they are hydraulic lifters. Try using 10w40 instead and see what happens or otherwise try using Moreys oil treatment with your current oil as it seems to me that the noise is more at startup and for a short period. Cheers.
