      I want to service my own car,this info will help out alot. Do you have to reset a service reminder or anything like that on the B6 too????
      If so how do you do it???


      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.

      does the 20k service require to change the filter cap plug? ?
      because i had my 20k service done at 25k miles, now im near 30k and i was about to change my oil when i saw the SAME filter cap plug i had on, but completely imposible to take out. the allen key does not hold and slips, even tryied bigger sizes, and nothing.
      would the dealer take care of that?

      Great write-up! I used this to change my oil for the first time yesterday. Although I forgot the adapter for the 32mm socket, so I had to ride my bike up to the auto parts store since no one was around. The car didn't fall on me so I live to see another day!
      One thing that pissed me off is how these oil change places don't know how to change out oil. It isn't that hard...all they have to do is stock the right products and have the right tools, which is something they should do ANYWAY. AND I hate the fact that I paid $81.87 to the dealer to get it changed one time, and $72.39 to Express Oil Change! 3rd time's the charm I guess. Oh well, that was my rant.

      A 6mm hex socket is worth it's weight in gold. It's very cheap!
      It works much better than a plain key,

      Which one is it for our engine again? I think i got the wrong one. It doesn't have the long neck like the one pictured here.
