Hi,

Recommend you change filter also, every 7,500 miles.

Quantity needed: 4.2 qts
Oil type: look for an API rating of "SJ" or better

Your selection of oil is really dependent on the temperatures the vehicle will endure, during the life of this oil change (i.e. is it winter or summer).

So, with this in mind you should select your oil, based on the following temperature chart:

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.

I just bought a 2000 beetle turbo ,it has 70,000 miles on it the person which I bought it from has kept really good care of the car ,what should I consider doing to it maintance wise , since it just turned...


first thing on a turbo, do an oil change using full synthetic oil. If you can, plan on replacing plugs and plug wires, replace antifreeze, and check brake linings. VW Beetles are tough to work on (little room), and it would also be a good idea to check hoses and belts, cleaning the engine.

What are some common engine problems in a 2000 VW beetle?


The most problematic engine issue is replacement of the timing belt, tension pully and water pump at around 70,000 miles. Failure of the timing belt can damage and possibly ruin the engine. Other common problems are low or sludged oil (if not changed intermittantly), loss of engine coolant, and bad glow plugs.

WHAT OIL IT NEEDS MY 2000 VW BEETLE 2.0 L WITH 140000 MILES


I found 2 listings for the 2.0L engine, A and B. The 'A' had no info on oil type, the 'B' stated all temperature ranges require type 'SJ' and 5/30 or 5/40 weight. Because the mileage is 140k, I am wondering how often you must add oil between changes. If you add none, or under a quart, 5/30 is ok, if you must add oil more often, use the heavier weight, 5/40.

How much to replace a timing chain on a 2000 vw passat--1.8 turbo-- should i do this?--it has 113,000 miles on it and it runs great.-- have changed the oil on it every 5000 miles since new--


You should have the timing belt changed between 90-100K miles. When you are having the belt changed you should also change the water pump rollers. The total cast would be $950.00
