Do I fill the filter with oil before screwing the new one on?

No, the filter will fill when you fill the engine.

Is 5w-30 mobile 1 full synthetic okay to use in this specific car?
Report spam or abuse
You'd have to check your owners manual to be sure, but Mobil 1 5W-30 meets VW Oil Spec VW 504.00 (The spec for this car) but the 0W 20 Does not.

+Steve Anderson Only the 5W 30 meets the VW specifications.

if you just want to change the filter and not drain the oil can you simply unscrew the filter and swap then top it off?

Where is the oil mark supposed to be on the dipstick?

Awesome video, I'll definitely use it when I change my oil. But do you need to fill up the new filter with oil before screwing it on? Or will it just circulate in there by itself when firing up the car? Thanks a bunch for the upload

It depends on where the oil pan drain plug is located. On our Jetta, when we only lift the front of the car, the drain plug is still at the lowest point of the oil pan. Therefore, all (or nearly all) the oil drained out without raising all four wheels.

I just changed the oil on a 2006 VW new beetle and the oil filter goes into a plastic housing. I only saw one area for the O-ring. Removed the old o-ring and replaced with a new one, but, there is a second o-ring with the fram oil filter I used and I am afraid that there could be a place for a second o-ring. Could you let me know if that second o-ring is there for another type of housing or should both o-rings have been used?

i actually remove and install the oil filter from above, from the top view you have perfect access to it.... that way you stay crean :D

I have read a lot about using mobile 1 5-40 synthetic oil is that what you recommend? Would you recommend using oil detergent to remove sludge? thank you for any help you can provide? Gregg

@AutoWerksofAmerica Thanks for the reply. On your video clip here at about 1:48 where you are removing the drain bolt, is that some sort of a OEM skid plate there protecting the bottom of the oil pan ? Or is that the actual bottom of the oil pan itself ?

The Bentley service manual says oil drain plug to oil pan torque is 30Nm (22 ft-lb) for VW Mk4 Golf/ Jetta 4cyl and 6 cyl engines.

We use a floor jack to raise the car but use jack stands to keep it safely in he air.

Well you saved me the job of typing the same question. I hope he used fully synthetic oil meeting Volkswagen 502 or 505 spec whatever it is today.

Hello AWoA: I have an 02Jetta which I lowered via coilovers. Recently I drove over a speed bump at about 10-15 mph and hit the under carriage of the car. I looked under and saw that the oil pan was scraped/scratch. Do you think I pinched the oil pan gaskets and will probably experience a leak in the future ? what other damage do you think I probably caused ?

The idea is to get the oil warm enough to flow freely. You don't have wait at all, just until you can touch the engine without burning yourself.

How can you tell on the Dipstick if there's enough oil? is it the yellow line? thanks

for mexicans watching this video: it's the same thing with Polo and of course SEAT cars like Córdoba, Ibiza, León and Alhambra

After a short drive to warm up the oil, how long should I wait for the car to cool down before changing the oil?
Report spam or abuse
It's an indent near the very bottom that looks like this [ Your oil level should be within the indent but at the top. Then again if you couldn't find it the chances of you being able to understand what I said are slim.

@AutoWerksofAmerica The biggest advantage with synthetics is reduced friction. This can result in better engine performance and higher mpg.

No need to fill the filter before installation. The filter will fill as you add oil to the engine.

Generally, If you didn't crack the oil pan, you'll be okay. The gasket is pliable and should not have been damaged from ground contact. If you don't have a leak now, you probably won't.

@AmieB2005 there should be 2 holes if the level is between the two holes then its good if it is below then add some more

All modern multi-grade oils contain detergent to remove sludge. If you change your oil on a regular basis, sludge should never be a problem. If you have a sludge problem, just change your oil more often. Unless you only drive on the highway, always use the extreme service maintenance schedule your auto manufacturer recommends. I am a true believer when it comes to synthetic oils. With synthetics, you can extend the the oil change interval versus non-synthetics.

But do you have to jack up all four wheels? The car needs to be in a plain position to release all of the oil, right?

If your doing a short drive to warm up the oil, you probably don't need to let it cool down....
