What engine do you have? Gas? Diesel? VW takes special oil. its all listed in the owners manual. Most MOBIL1 products are ok if they meet the spec. It will say something like VW 500.00 or VW502.00 for gas models.

Yes I have a 1998 Volkswagon bug 2.0L 4 cylinder and I was just wandering what type of oil it takes and how much oil?


The recommended is 5W30 and it takes 4 qts when changing the filter. With this year of Beetle (I have the same one) I prefer to use a high mileage synthetic blend or full synthetic as it stands up better and provides better lubrication for the older moving parts. I personally take mine to a local place for oil change, but I checked with many to find one that I was comfortable with and had experience working on VW Beetles. There is a technique that must be used with reinstalling the oil pan plug and it is very easy to strip it which was done by the previous owners.

98 VW Beetle Check Engine light


Could be a lot of things, take it to autozone. More than likely they can scan the code for you, they can't tell you exactly what is wrong but they can steer you in the right direction. Give them a call to see if they are able to scan the codes on your VW. Good luck.

They are not adjustable. Try some crank case additive like Berrymens chemtool to free them up.
