Hello there! I'm Eurocar ! I will try to assist you as much as I can. Quality research = Quality answer!!
note you do have 3 care free maintenences!!!
no leakage very very minimum
that plug that the dealer gave you will work
that plug you can reuse for 3 times and then replace
and please use the factory filter and 5w40 castrol syntec oil !! and keep all reciepts just incase if you have a major engine repair under warranty !! they will ask for that to make sure that you are up to par on the maintenence of your vehicle!
Do you suggest any torque in ft. lbs. when installing the new drain plug or just tighten like any other engines I have changed the oil on?
10 nm is the torque spec !!
rule of thumb tighten by hand till no more and the wrench it snug
so not whale on it
Yes, I know I have 3 free carefree maint. but every 10,000 miles! I do not want to leave the oil in the engine that long so will change myself at my cost. I was going to use 5W30 Mobil1 oil & WIX filter.
5w40 castrol please
wix good filter!!
O.K. That answers all my questions.
mobil 1 do not make 5w40 blend
sure please do not forget to leave positive feedback for my assistance!
any other question please do not hesitate on asking for me!
have a safe evening
My Manual that came with the car states 5W30 oil.
must be a recent change!!! we use 5w40 syn for all cars and approved by VW
O.K. Thank you!
