Ideally every 5000 km, the book says 10.000 km for regular oil or 15.000 km for synthetic.

A knocking sound on my 98 vw passat engine and a ticking sound on the upper engine side - help


I fear the news is probably not good. Many Passats around 1998-2004 were badly affected by engine sludge even when oil changes were done regularly.

http://www.thecarconnection.com/news/1049827_settlement-addresses-engine-sludge-issue-in-audi-a4-vw-passat


These noises usually mean that oil starvation has caused an engine bearing to fail, and also excessive wear in the camshaft area. If the sump is removed the sludge (if there) will be seen.

On a 2003 vw passat is synthetic oil required, or can you put in high quality petroleum oil in? Regards Paul


VW recommends synthetic oil only. There's a bulletin out warning about oil sludge if conventional oil is used. Stick with waht is recommended in your owner's manual.

2003 VW PASSAT. Check engine light goes on and


8.5 hrs + parts sounds about right. But why would a 7 year old cars oil pump fail? They usually last a lifetime. Has there been a lubrication problem? Low oil, cheap oil, wrong oil? But then again my daughters 04 Toyota needed a valve job, head gasket and water pump recently. I'm doing 90% of work and it still cost about $2000. Her problem was bad oil!

2003 automatic VW Passat not changing gears right


The trannys on the vw's are weird, they actually have a brain which tells the tranny what to do, when to switch gears under the driving conditions etc. Is thair a check engine light on? when is the last time you had a tranny service done on it? Also, it sounds even weirder, but is your alternator ok, is it putting out the proper volts to the battery? the alternator not charging the system can lead to alot of weird acting issues.

2003 VW Passat "Oil Press, Turn Off Engine" and "STOP" Light


I would check the oil pressure sensor and the oil pump itself. You can take the sensor out and use a mechanical gauge to check the oil pressure. If the oil pressure is within specs, you need a new sensor, if not, you need a new pump.

2003 VW Passat Malfunction Indicator Lamp on


I have a 2003 Passat GLX V6 and i havent been experiencing this issue, however from my experience with VW, the early 2000 models of the passat that have a 1.8T 4 cylinder engine have a major issue with what has been deemed "oil sludge" you have to be careful with this engine oil wise and make sure to get the oil changed every 3,500 - 4,500 miles and make sure you get the full synthetic oils for it and the proper filters :-) the turbo that is on this model heats up the oil to extreme temperatures and if not serviced regularly you will have problems.... i hope this helps! i would have someone check it again for this issue... hopefully you get to it before it becomes costly!
