      Got mine at sears..

      amazing this thread is still going.. may become the worlds longest oil change DIY post..

      As for the splash shield.. you could leave it on.. I took mine off.. the four screws were not a major time issue. Trimming the shield does sound like a good idea if you drive allot and need to service it frequently.

      Thanks again for all the positive comments! With the training posted here you too could work at jiffy lube!

      I wonder how many vr6's they get at Jiffy Lube? My buddy took his '97 Jetta VR6 there and after he pulled it in they said they couldn't change it for him.

      FYI ... I just bought a filter for my .:R and the part I was supplied is 071 115 562 A, but it looks identical to the one in the picture at the start of this thread.

      check the 12v vr6 forum cause thats what u have.


    10. 05-20-2005 01:35 PM #115
      Synthetic and go 5,000 miles, dino if you go 3,000 mile iterval oil changes. Weight would be depended on your locations weather.

      Just back checking parts sources and stumbled on this question. complete plug/ washers are cheap enough but washers are cheaper.
      I bought a spare plug and just cut the washer off the old one w/ a sharp pair of dikes (the tool for you gutter brains!). The new one will just thread on. It only gets locked after being crushed. I suggest a new one each time, esp w/ copper since it work hardens and won't seal well a second time. Bonus puzzler- how do you anneal copper??? (good to know for other more expensive gaskets).
      I'll tell if someone tells me how to drop emoticons into messages.....

      If by messages you mean Vortex IM's it's the icon button. If not, ignore me.

      BTW, don't you get scared just getting into your Corvair? Driving it must be absolutely terrifying. I mean after all it is Unsafe At Any Speed

      How many times have you heard that one?

      Was told by a Local VW Master Tech, that the little O-Ring on the filter is supposed to stay on the filter. It seals the top of the filter in an Anitdrain back valve or some stuff like that. He said that when the engine first came out, they had some engineers come in and give a couple of classes on the differences of the 12V and 24V engines, and they also covered oil change procedures as well. It was stated that the Little Oring Stays on the filter. All the local VW service Departments around me (about 5 of them) agree with the statement.

      Interesting info on the O-ring.. I'll ask my dealer as well.. when I took the filter off my car the 1st oil change there was no little o-ring on the filter.. belive me.. I looked everywhere for it.. thought it was stuck somwhere, fell in the drain pan etc. When I could not find it and found the little o-ring on the plug was the same size.. figured it went there..

      Anyone work for VW? Do Offical VW insturctions exist for this??


    17. 10-21-2005 09:38 AM #122
      If you look up in the engine where the filter tip goes there is nothing for it to touch. The whole plastic tip is unneccessary for that matter.
      As stated before, this filter is not specific to only this engine, but fits many engine types.
      So I suspect the o-ring and serves a function one of these other engines.

      What are you talkin about buddy? B6? Thats a passat, passats have never had this motor in them. Your sig says you have a 2.0T -- the oil change procedure will be different on that car - its an entirely different platform and engine ...

      On THIS motor (24v 2.8L VR) there is no service light however.

      Awesome thread.. I know it is 2 years later but nice job.. my only question is what is the best kind of oil to use my owners manual is missing a few pages and the dealership gave me some some weird oil # Castrol L505 something. I can't find it anywhere. Can someone help me out? Plus I live in Ohio and it is cold here.

      sounds about right what i paid for mine. i used it once when i first got the car.

      i'm one of those people who think as long as its synthetic, oil is oil. providing you use the correct weight for the area you live in.

      i overkill on oil. since i bought the car new, i've changed oil every 3000 miles. with such small intervals, at least to me, oil is oil. plus i garage her every winter so i don't have many miles on her.

      as far as oil quality, i think its a great oil. if you go long between changes i would use it.
