Some dealers have the correct oil, some don't. Just make sure and remind them that your car needs 5w-40 505.01 oil, not 505.00 oil.

Dropped by the Killeen VW. None of the oil bottles were the right ones, and the dealership seemed to be confused on the topic....kiss off the warrentee!

Re: 505.01 in New Jersey (dieselpwr)

since you drive a diesel, you can drop by Martens VW in Washington DC and get your oil change done RIGHT! they use 505.01 and you will sleep well at night knowing they did it.
since you are in nj, you could probably get here in 1/2 a tank of fuel!
Martens VW recommended.
Martens VW trusted.
All you need is Martens VW in DC. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: 505.01 in New Jersey (dieselpwr)

Does anyone know of the "VW T4 Test/Spec"?
Castrol Syntec meets this.
I live in Detroit, and Bardahl (made in the USA, but not sold in the USA) makes a 5W40 505.01 called XTC.
I can cross the bridge to C-A-N-A-D-A and buy it for $7.34 per liter (American)
I am saving all of my receipts, and buying VW Filters from IMPEX.
I cannot trust a Dealership o change my oil, nor can they rotae tires without F$%king up the wheels. When my timing belt is due, I will be in surgical garb looking over their shouldes every step of the way.

Re: 505.01 in New Jersey (dieselpwr)

I CALLED THREE COUNTY VW TODAY AND ASKED ABOUT THE 505.01
THEY SAID SURE WE GOT IT..... (SO FAR SO GOOD)
THEN HE SAYS " SAME OIL AS ALL THE TDI FROM OTHER YEARS"
SO I HUNG UP.
NEXT STEP IS TO CALL VW OF AMERICA
APPARENTLY NONE OF THESE DEALERS KNOW WHAT THE HELL 505.01 IS.

Well it took awhile to find the MOTUL on the IMPEX site, but it was worth it. 20L delivered for about 2/3 the price of the Canadian Bardahl, and no hassles at the border.
(Search tip/IMPEX Site, select 2004 Jetta TDI BEW, List ALL Parts, and MOTUL should be near the bottom. OR JUST SEARCH PART #505.01)
I like the part about carrying Spare 505.01 SPEC Oil with you, just in case.
Also a note for us PASSAT TDI owners, this 505.01 spec applies to us.... as well as the Jetta PD owners.
