    2019 Volkswagen Jetta GLI 2.0 Turbo six speed........transmission oil

    Actually it doesn't get better even when it's fully warmed up. The issue only seems to be when you are accelerating very fast. In normal driving it seems to go into second without an issue.

    2019 Volkswagen Jetta GLI 2.0 Turbo six speed........transmission oil

    Hi everyone, I own a 2019 Volkswagen Jetta GLI with the six speed LSD transmission. My car has 4,300 miles on it as of today. I purchased the car new in May, and I didn't notice any shifting issues over the course of the spring/summer/fall. Now that the winter is upon us, I have noticed some...

    Mobil 1 0w40 European Oil......the new 5w30?

    Hi everyone, I was in Costco recently and I noticed that they now carry Mobil 1 0w40 European oil. It was on sale until the end of November for $23.00 for a case of six quarts. Based upon what I have read here, it seems to be a very good oil. Can this oil be substituted for run of...

    Mobil 1 5w30 ESP - What is the correct application???? Benefit/Harm?

    I was thinking of running the Mobil 1 5w30 ESP in my 2000 Toyota Celica GT-S with the 2ZZ engine. The Celica is just a summer toy and at this point it only has 29,000 miles, but it is a very high reving engine, so I figured the ESP "might" offer a touch extra protection over the regular Mobil 1...

    Mobil 1 5w30 ESP - What is the correct application???? Benefit/Harm?

    Well cost aside, would it harm the Sienna in terms of emissions equipment, etc? Would it be beneficial, even slightly, in the Sienna?

    2019 Volkswagen GLI (2.0 T) - Dipstick Question

    I don't have the Budack in my 2019 GLI. But I agree that VW probably just installed the incorrect dipsticks.

    2019 Volkswagen GLI (2.0 T) - Dipstick Question

    Interesting, I have noted on a cold engine the same area on the dipstick. I have never owned a car that didn't properly register on the dipstick.

    2019 Volkswagen GLI (2.0 T) - Dipstick Question

    Exactly what I was thinking, but I know for a fact that it is not low..........unless the engine holds more than six quarts.

    2019 Volkswagen GLI (2.0 T) - Dipstick Question

    Hi everyone, I have a quick question about the oil dipstick on my 2019 VW GLI with the 2.0 engine. The oil capacity of the engine is six quarts with a new filter cartridge. The strange thing with this engine is that when it is filled to full capacity with six quarts of oil it never registers...

    Mobil 1 5w30 ESP - What is the correct application???? Benefit/Harm?

    Hi everyone, I have a quick question about Mobil 1 5w30 ESP, what is the correct application for this oil? I realize that the oil has the VW 504/507 rating as well as other OEM manufacturers approvals, but is it a good oil to run in a "run of the mill" engine that requires regular 5w30...

    So are you saying that Mobil 1 5w30 ESP is a good substitute for 508?

    Any 2 Euro oils you guys would like to see a VOA for?

    Please do this comparison! This would hopefully answer some of the "new" 508 questions! Did I mention that this is the best one to do?

    Amsoil 5w-30 once a year or Mobil 1 ESP 5w-30 twice a year?

    How does the quality of the current (new version) of Mobil 1 ESP 5w30 compare the the quality of the original Mobil 1 ESP 5w30? Supposedly the original version was made in France and it was of better quality.
