      How does one oil "feel" better than another ?

      Run it through your fingers and experience the lushness of Motul and pure clean taste.

      Although I brought my own oil/filter... The service here was very professional... he took his time and treated my car with care.

      I have used conventional oil for years, ready for the switch, will I need a flush?

      Flush is a good idea and risky at the same time. If your engine has sludge issues then it may cause problems.

      So I've heard, but how would I know?

      Lucas has gone in about 6 or 7 oil changes, to help oil consumption problem. I want to stop using that as well, to flush or not to flush that is the question.

      Lucas causes oil foaming. Check out http://bobistheoilguy.com/ for the tests which prove it.
      If you have an oil burning problem, step up to a higher viscosity instead of using Lucas.
      An engine oil flush chemical is used on severely dirty engines where the oil wasn't changed enough, or if the engine has sludge. It isn't necessary to flush the oil if you are switching from conventional to synthetic oil.
      Audi increased the size of their oil filter to help resolve an oil sludging problem. See if you can install a larger oil filter, an Audi one might fit. Perjad will know.
      I have heard great reviews about SeaFoam cleaners, although any cleaner should do the job well. Since the 2.0L has sludge issues, it would be a good idea to flush it. Some people don't like the idea of using engine flush chemicals since they are hard on the bearings and all metal surfaces, but that is a lesser evil to plugged oil galleries - which would cause oil starvation.
      Synthetic oil won't burn quicker than conventional, so you are okay in that department.

      Go ahead and add the Lucas oil stabilizer.. nothing wrong with it.. Here's a reply from Lucas themselves.. and they're right.. i've been running Lucas in my engines for 10 years and have never expierenced the supposed air bubbles.. here's the email..
      Thank you for your concern, we appreciate it very much. You are
      correct, Bob the Oil Guy is nothing more than a salesmen for one of our
      competitors. He rigged up the test to try and discredit us so he could
      sell more of his oil. Our oil is run by Top-Fuel Dragsters, NASCAR's and
      Indy Cars, these are the harshest motor conditions on the road and we
      have never had one problem with foaming or lack of protection. The best
      thing we can tell you is to run your car and pull the dipstick out right
      afterward and see for yourself if there is any foaming. Thanks for
      using our products and please feel free to contact us with any other
      concerns or questions you may have.
      I know of many other friends and family members that use Lucas and also swear by it.. Don't get caught up with some knobs bad info..
      Have fun with your engine!

      fuel for the fire.....

      you can always go with Motul Engine Clean and Fuel system clean for the gas or Diesel System clean for the diesel motors. That stuff is awesome.

      Two questions for Precision.
      1) I have a 1.8T - How extra for the Royal purple and is it worth it?
      2) Do you have or do they make the magnetic drain plugs for this car? If so how much are they?
      I'll be stoping buy either later this week or next week for an oil change.

      5W40 lubromoly, Motul or AMSOIL are all better choices for your motor compare to RP.
      I dont carry magnatic drain plug and there is no need for it. If you have chunk of metals in your oil then your engine needs a rebuild.

      Nope. No chunks of metal in my oil. Was simply asking a question as I've seen many other suggest them. As for the choice in oil, is there any paticular reason why you would grade those three oils above RP?
      I thought Royal Purple was some excellent oil?

    19. 06-12-2006 09:10 PM #44
      1.8T requires specific addetives to protect the bearings. VW approved oils such as lubromoly, Penthosynth and Mutol will do a better job.
      RP is a great oil but not for your application.

      Had my oil changed there at PT last week and I gotta say...I don't think i've had a faster oil change from a REAL shop (not a place like the oil changers) ever!!
      Great service.

      Any chance there will be another Lubromoly/Mann special in the near future?
