It is universally recommended to change your oil every 3 months or 3000 miles which ever comes first.

I WANT TO CHANGE THE OIL IN A 2003 VW JETTA TDI 1.9 AND I WANT TO KNOW WHICH OIL IS THE BEST


Everyone will have an opinion on brands..VW recommends 5w40 synthetic at 10,000 mile intervals.. (505.00 spec) You can use any weight you want as long as it is a 505.00 spec oil.. but 5w40 will is a good all season all around way to go.

505.01is backward compatibles so to speak.. just an fyi.

Castrol Syntec 5w40(Only available at VW Dealer) or Mobile 1 TDT (Turbo Diesel Truck) 5w40 are two you can rely on doing a good job.

You can find the Mobile 1 TDT at most auto parts stores.. I would recommend you use the Volkswagen Filter or one made by Mann, they also make a respectable one equal to or according to some better than the VW.

The opinions are all over the place on oil brands but all agree on sticking with one that meets the 505.00 spec.. and most generally agree on using the factory filter or a really well made aftermarket one as mentioned.. If you don't want to spend the hours reading all the postings.. stop by the dealer and pick up the standard VW version.

Also most folks nowadays agree on keeping to the mfg recommended intervals.. unless you are operating in harsh environments..typically the mfg has recommendations for that as well.

Which oil is the best.. Take your pick of the major brands as long as they meet the spec's.. The two I mention have better "soot capture" ability therefore may better protect your pollution control devices.

Best of luck!

What oil is needed for a 2002 VW beetle diesel for engine


I personally have used shell rotella 5w40 and nothing else since 2001. You can find it at almost any wal-mart, and napa can get it for you. Recommended viscosity is 5w40, with a commercial rating (ch, ci, cj...) and turbo approved.

How often do I need to change the synthetic oil in a 2003 jetta tdi? and what grade of oil is best?


Change it every 10k miles. You have to use 5W40 FULL SYNTHETIC oil. Not just any oil! You can buy Shell Rotella T 5w40 or Mobil1 5w40 Turbo Diesel Truck oil at Walmart. Both of these oils meet VW's TDI oil requirements.

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.

What oil type do I use...2003 vw beetle?


if U live in a cold climate use 5W-30W, if u live in a moderate climate with hot summers use 10W-30W, any name brand meets your engines requirements. Do not use any oils heavier than these two, it can cause engine bearing damage.
