I have a 2002 1.4 golf and my manual is in german. what type of oil does it use?

A normal American oil can be use in that German speaking car!

10w/40 is normal....... 5w/50 is special and much expensive!

U could try both, it depends on ur budget!

Hope that slicks evrything up!

I have put waaayyyy to much oil in my vw golf 2002 and I need to drain it but I can't seen to find where I drain it from also is there anything else that I will need to do after this? Thanks

You will have to take the under tray off to access the sump drain bung, the bung is normally a 19mm spanner size, Don't run engine until oil is correct level, as damage can be done to catalytic convertor. ( you will have to jack car up pretty high to remove cover, and be sure to use axle stands to secure vehicle )

Computer saying oil press, stop motor , also the temperature guage is not going up to its normal 90degrees, and the emmissions are smokey, i havent noticed a difference in fuel consumption so i am guessing...

Hi. well that light means that you have a low oil pressure probably because you have been using the regular conventional oil instead using syntetic oil thats what causes clogs inside the engine because this type of car uses syntetic oil so if i was wanting to fix that myself ill start by using an engine flush before every oil change (remember to use syntetic oil) and that might help but ill be wise to take it to a garage just to make sure it has oil pressure.
