Oil is a matter of preference,just as the brand of bike.Find a forum for your bike and see what all the other owners are using and recommend.The forums are a good source for info on specific models of bikes..Thanks

I want to put the best oil brand and filter in my car..want to get some suggestions on which type of oil and best brand...thanks

Hi Duke:

I ran Castrol in my race cars for years and never had an engine failure that would be associated with an oil problem.

That's not to say it's better than any other brand.
Your auto parts and supplies store... Napa, Lordco ???
will coach you on the appropriate filter for your specific application.

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 type of motor oil should I use for a 2001 jetta tdi?

There's a few that you can use - but in general

Use Full Synthetic only for the TDIs...

There's various schools of thought after that in terms of 5x 30, 5w 40, even 0w 30 or 0w40

I've been using Castrol Synthetic 5w 30. The original specs for my 2000 Jetta TDI may have been for 5w40 oil formulated for diesels - but with the Synthetics now I think the 5w30 is felt to be the best in terms of what works best in the Turbo

You can probably go every 5,000 to 7,500 miles between changes - a good thing since the synthetic oils are more expensive

by the way, some also suggest changing the fuel filter at every oil change. I'm thinking that's a bit much but others may disagree... maybe ever 15,000 miles for me
