Question about 2003 Volkswagen Passat
2003 passat 1.8t oil light popped on. I was having repairs done from an accident that wasn't my fault so I assumed that it was from that. Insurance company shop mechanic told me it was a sludging problem very popular with this vehicle type. I went ahaead and performed a flush and changed the filter and oil (Valvoline MAX LIFE SAE5w-30 synthetic). Car ran fine yesterday. Today on my way to work anytime I pushed it above 2000 RPMs the car would make a howling noise and have little pick up. Do I need to perform a more serious flush? I have BG Quick Clean 109 but was hesitant to use it and used a more generic brand. Please help.
Vw group all say engine should be flushed at every service but owners are normally cheapskates(like me) and dont get it done(i do my own oil changes )your running problem has nothing to do with oil/filter/flush.get a computer diagnostic asap its easier than guessing...
