i was wondering what the best oil and filter was for the 1999 Jetta 2.0 GLS @ 40k miles? where can i get it other than from the stealership and how much? how often do you think is neccessary to change the oil in my Jetta? the guy who i bought my car from (knowledgable in cars) told me, but i forgot...
If it is the same as 2001 cars, the specs are:
Change oil every 10000 miles or 1 year, whichever comes first. Note that other services, such as tire rotation and inspections, should also be done.
Use 5W-40 oil with VW 502.00, ACEA A3, or API SJ or SL rating.
Filters should be available in many places.
Check the owner's manual or Bentley service manual.
