Question about 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
I have a volkwagen jetta 1.8T.The engine oil indicator light blinks and I had to change the oil and the filter thinking the oil had over stayed. But the problem still persist however, I notice that the oil is not circulating properly when I start the engine and open the oil cap the top was very dry.
Please kindly advise.
Sounds like it could be a sludge issue which can be caused from using the incorrect oil. It is a very specific synthetic type of oil that VW suggests and when you don't use it the engine can actually 'gunk' up and cause turbo failure. (This problem happened when a non-vw dealer sold me my car with the wrong type of synthetic in it and my turbo seized)
