Re: jetta 2.0 oil adjust (danny501)
VW now recommends VW 502.00 rated oil, best 5W-40. Note that together oil only comes in artificial in the US, although not all artificial oils meet VW 502.00. If you usage Mobil 1, the grade with the VW 502.00 rating is 0W-40.

Re: jetta 2.0 oil adjust (danny501)Here is a handy dandy perform of all the authorized oils. But, i echo the Mobil 1 sentiment that everyone else has argued (I also go Mobil 1 for my filters).As for the drainpipe plug, it will either be a 3/4" 6 allude bolt, or an 8mm hex bolt.

You have apparently not done any research top top Amsoil full syn. Fluids. Mobil1 is crap contrasted to that.NEVER usage Castrol Syntec, the is no a true syn. Oil.

although that is true that group IV and also V base oils are high grade and considered synthetic, team III is also considered a artificial base oil group. And also last ns saw, mobil 1 was using team III as well for their synthetics

Re: (gawa)
you gotta realize the each team comes in different stages. There are your team ones, which isn"t very refined, just thick goopy oil. Then team II which space refined, but group II is damaged into various groups such as group II+. Castrol uses team III+ similar to 99% that every other agency uses since using group IV and group V"s are WAYYY also expensive and produce the same outcomes as team III+"s. No to point out Castrol and also VW are nearly joined at the hip

My advice is that make sure you speak the bolt to spec as soon as replacing it. If you tighten it also much, climate you"ll easily strip the threads.
