1.9TDI Oil grade

4 posts in this topic

Hi folks.

Can a one let me know the required oil speck for a 55 plate 1.9tdi passat.

Also I'm going to get the cam belt and bits changed bit I've noticed there are lots of different brands on the market. Which is the best/most reliable to fit.

Thanks.

Not sure on oil spec, but it HAS to be PD compatible. Your manual will have the spec in there. Something about VW 50*.* spec.

Have a look on 'oilmans' site in the For Sale/classified section.

Hope that helps.

Hi

The oil you need depends on the service schedule the car is on. If it is on an annual/10k miles service, you need an oil that meets the 505.01 specification. If it's the variable service schedule (up to 20k/2 years), you need an oil that meets the 507.00 spec.

505.01 - VW - Engine Oil - 505.01

507.00 - VW - Engine Oil - 507.00 - VW 507.00 motor oil

They are all good oils, so make your decision based on any brand/price preference you have.

Cheers

Tim
