You need a certified oil and a fellow VW enthusiast on a forum suggested that you use Castrol Syntec 5w-40. It's the same oil that I use in my BMW.

Here's a link to a quart of it.

My oil light came on yesterday and I checked the oil. It was empty, it never has had to have oil added to it between changing and now it's empty. Someone told me it might be the oil sendor, so I want to...


Hi,
Sounds like the oil light and sender are doing their job. They are telling you, you are losing oil pressure. That will happen if you are low on oil or have pressure problems. Add oil and see if the light goes out and pressure returns. You may have leaks or a worn out engine.

I have a VW Jetta 1997 with a 2.0 liter gas engine and I was wondering what oil that motor takes. Also I was wondering how to get the radio/Cd player working


The oil to use is 10/40 semi synthetic(VW fit 10/40 full when, new but dealers buy gemini 10/40 direct from VW for all services for cars over 5 years old).with regards the stereo system,if its the original and it says CODE then you will need to find the code(dealer) or get the thing recoded.
