I'm not sure I'd attribute this to pushing items on Amazon... I think he was just showing which products he used.I think this is a BS post just pushing links to items from Amazon
Where are you seeing that it's a 2.0T? Since he put in 4.5 liters of oil, and is using the correct Mann filter for a 2.5, I'd assume that's what he's got. It would be nice if he'd specify that...This the first time doing an oil/filter change on this 2.0T?
In this case, it's a good VW 502.00-spec engine oil; and the correct Mann filter.
Dumb question.... But is OP sure he installed the drain plug correctly (and used a new one, since the crush washer isn't reusable)?
And that he popped the orange drain valve in the filter housing closed again after draining the housing?
And that the filter housing was installed back correctly?
And that the filter housing gasket was changed? Not missing or double-installed?
Seems to me that losing that much oil in such a short time indicates a major oil leak somewhere. Is there a puddle of oil under the car?
